This si an easy one-we always do it in P.E.

Ok, so you put your right leg forward (or left) and make sure it is BENT. then , with your other leg, (the opposite one to the one you have put forward and bent) keep it where it is and make sure it is STRAIGHT. Stretch for about 6 seconds, then do the same to your other legs.
