Standing Hamstring Stretch – Foot Elevated

  • HOW: Begin in a standing position with one foot on top of an elevated surface. Keep your knee straight and your foot relaxed pointed mostly down. Pretend you have a tail, try to tuck your tail behind you causing your hips to tilt forward making the stretch harder. Use both hands to reach towards your foot stretching your hamstring muscles. Hold that for as long as prescribed. 
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch in your hamstring muscles. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your back upright, don’t slouch. Don’t bend your knee.
