STRAIGHT LEG RAISES Lie down with 1 leg bent at a 90-degree angle and your foot flat on the floor. Extend your other leg fully. Tighten your quadriceps (thigh muscles) within your straightened leg and raise it to a 45-degree angle. Hold your leg in this elevated position for about 1 or 2 seconds before slowly lowering it back to the ground. Do 3 sets of 8 to 12 repetitions.

HAMSTRING STRETCH Sitting at the edge of your chair, straighten one leg out in front of your body with your heel on the floor and your toes pointed towards the ceiling. Then, sit up straight and try pushing your navel towards your thigh without leaning the trunk of your body forwards. Repeat 3 times for each leg.
