How should I do butt stretching exercises as a teen?

Daphne Oz
Health Education
To do a butt stretch: Sit down and bring your feet as close to your butt as possible, slightly less than shoulder-width apart. Put your hands, palms down and fingers facing forward, a couple of inches behind you and push your bottom a few inches up off the floor. Cross your right leg over your left knee so that your right ankle rests just above your left kneecap. Lower your butt toward the floor to increase the stretch. Lightly press your lower back up toward the calf of the leg that is crossed. Think elongating your spine instead of compacting it down. Switch sides. Breathing and relaxing are key.
