Like its sister exercise, the Double Straight Leg Stretch is a long leveler exercise with the legs straight and moving away from your torso.

Remember to keep a solid and stable pelvis, bend your knees to accommodate tight hamstrings, and reduce your range of motion to support the work in the abdominals. However, do not be afraid to make a significant reach for your calf or ankle to get that active stretch. Think about the abdominals pulling the legs towards you first and the arms second. Let me know if you have any additional questions or need modifications or advice for your unique body.
