Standing Dynamic Hamstring Stretch

Standing Dynamic Hamstring Stretch

  • HOW: Get set-up standing, feet shoulder width apart, with the side you want to stretch - place the foot slightly in front of the other. While maintaining a relatively flat back, neutral spine, and neutral foot position hinge at your hip and reach for your toes. Slowly come back to starting position and repeat.
 
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch behind your thigh and knee. You may also feel a pulling sensation higher up on the back of your thigh and/or into your calf and foot. If it is too intense you can point your foot down.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Do not bend/round your back too much as this will take away from the hamstring stretch.
