It is necessary to try to sit as low as possible, but you should not feel the pain in a process. It is required to stay in this position for fifteen seconds or more. After this, repeat this exercise with another leg. Do 8-12 repetitions for each leg.

Put your hands on the floor, bend your hip and lean forward as low as possible, while trying leaning to your leg. Stay in this position for fifteen seconds or more. Then repeat this exercise with your other leg. In total, you need to perform it for about 8-12 times.
- In the third stage, a stretch method similar to the one you have done in the second stage. However, it is considered to be better. You need to bend your leg from behind and then sit on it.

This exercise should be repeated the same way as the previous ones.
