This worked almost magically for me. I started with a strap, finished holding my foot in my hand.

I must have been doing something wrong because this was way too easy. Is it important to keep your knee bent at a certain angle? Say 90°? More? Less? Doesn't matter?

It doesn't have to be exact, but it's best to have your knee bent at around 90 degrees.
