Standing Hamstring Stretch – Foot Elevated, 3 Way

  • 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 to the inside of the leg, towards your foot, and to the outside of your leg. Return to the starting position after each rep. 
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch in your hamstring muscles. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your back upright, don’t slouch. Don’t bend your knee.
