Start by standing on one foot (either one to start) with a slight bend in your knee. Slowly hinge at the hips, kick your opposite leg back and reach for a foam roller (or counter top). The distance of the object should be challenging but doable. Keep your balance and tap the object, then slowly return to the starting position in a controlled fashion. Perform suggested reps on each leg.
