Do you want to know a simple exercise for hamstring flexibility?
Well, it’s as simple as having a stretch strap or even a beach towel.
So, gear up and get ready to loosen up your legs with this simple lower body stretch most anyone can do.
Stretching to Improve Hamstring Flexibility
- Lying on your back, place the strap around your foot and extend your leg upward.
- Rest your other leg.
- Pull your elbows back and upward while maintaining a straightened leg.
- Keep the resting hip flat on the floor.
- Hold this position for 20-30 seconds, then slowly release and repeat the movement.
- Switch sides and equally train the opposite leg.
Relax your hamstring (the back side of your upper leg) and breathe deeply throughout the stretch.
Challenge yourself every time to sink deeper into the stretch than previous attempts.
Stretch till you have slight discomfort and never pain.
