WINDMILL . . .
This is an exercise that has a firm home in the yoga community, working to stretch and strengthen the entire side of your body. Stand with your feet directly under your hips. Straighten one arm overhead. Rotating on your heels, point your fee 45 degrees away from the hand that is up. Lock the same side knee and begin pushing your weight into your hip, allowing a bending action to begin. Have your opposite hand on the inside of your thigh, and as you push your hip away, allow that hand to slowly glide down your leg until you reach your sock. Keep your spine straight at all times, along with the loaded side knee. If you can, take your fingers to the floor (without giving up your spine)!
