How to Stretch Your Hamstrings in the Kitchen

Chef Workout: Elevated Hamstring Stretch

In between cooking and doing dishes, I love to take a few minutes to stretch in the kitchen. Here's a move that will stretch your hamstrings and lower back. You'll need a stool for this stretch.

To learn how to do this stretch,

.

  • Stand about three feet behind a stool. Prop your right heel on it and keep both legs straight.
  • Hinge at your hips and slowly fold your belly toward your right thigh. Remember to draw your head away from your hips to lengthen your spine. Lower your torso as much as you can while maintaining a straight back and legs.
  • Hold for 30 seconds, relaxing your shoulders away from your ears and breathing deeply.
  • Then stand up, step your right foot off the stool, and do this stretch with the left leg elevated.
