Tailor Press

Tailor-press exercise

This exercise stretches your hip and thigh muscles and strengthens your arm and leg muscles.

  • Bring the bottoms of your feet together, then draw them as close to your body as you can.
  • Cup your hands under your knees.
  • Press your knees toward the floor. At the same time, resist that force by pulling upward with your hands. Do this while slowly counting to 3. Relax.
  • Gradually increase the number of presses you do each day. A good goal is 10 times, twice daily.
