Are you tight in your low and mid back, and at the same time in your hamstrings? We are often very stiff in this area, especially in the morning. The stretch you are about to learn targets both of these areas at once and is actually quite easy to do. First, stand facing your kitchen chair with your feet together about 12 inches from the chair. Then, keeping your legs straight, lean forward from the hips and place both hands on the seat of the chair. Breath in, then as you exhale, arch your back. Feel the stretch in your mid back, hips and hamstrings. Hold for 10-20 seconds, then repeat 3 times.
