Advanced Standing Hamstring Stretch

If the previous stretch isn't deep enough for you then try this variation. It's perfect for doing on a bench after a run in the park.

  • Prop your left heel up on a surface that is a little lower than your hip such as a chair or bench. Flex your foot.
  • To increase the stretch bend forward toward your flexed foot, by creasing at your hips. Hold for 30 seconds and switch legs.
