Start in a seating position with the legs straight and wide apart.
Bend the upper body sideways towards one leg, keeping the chest upwards.
Stretch side ways as mush as you can without collapsing the chest down, keeping the back straight.
Hold the position for about 30 seconds and change sides. Keep working the toes upward.
