2. With opened hands, place the tips of your middle fingers on the ground and then abduct your other fingers by spreading them as far from the middle finger as possible.
3. Now while keeping your fingers spread begin to lower them down to the ground until all four fingers are down to the first knuckle. (Hold for 3s)
4. Bring your hands back up to the starting position and repeat the process 10 times trying to spread the fingers more and more each time.
