Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Easy

Impact Level: Low Impact

Target Body Parts: upper back, lower back, hamstrings

Instructions

Begin by standing up and stepping your right foot forward one pace or about a yard. Then, keeping both legs as straight as possible and your feet flat on the floor, lower your upper body over your front leg, aiming to get your hands to touch the floor. Then lower your head down towards your front shin.

How to make Triangle Forward Bend (Right) easier

If you find this hard to do with straight legs, try having a slight bend in your front leg to release the hamstring tension a little. Also if you cannot reach the floor with your hands, support yourself by holding around your front ankle.
