The Best Way to Get In and Out of a Hammock
Everyone looks good lazing in a hammock―it’s getting in and out that’s tricky. To make it less so, try these tips from Penny
Waugh, a buyer for hammocks.com.
- Position your backside toward the hammock’s center and tilt back until you reach a 45-degree angle, with the hammock parallel
to your rear.
- Gently sit back into the hammock and let it level out.
- Swing your legs up and stretch them out.
- Lie back. Loll. Sigh contentedly. For a graceful exit, sit upright and swing your legs off, anchoring your feet on the ground. Then push with your behind, gathering momentum to stand. “It’s tricky, since there’s nothing to hold on to,” says Waugh. “But it’s good for the glutes.”
