The stretch for the week is…
Find a partner willing to handle your feet. Have the helper interlock their fingers of both hands and hold onto one of your feet with their thumbs on the top of your foot. Start with bent knees, sitting on the floor. Slowly straighten your knees as far as you can while your partner holds your feet with your toes still on the floor.
