This hamstring stretch is similar to ballet leg stretches using the barre, but can easily be done using a stationary bike or an elevated surface to offer a deep and effective stretch.
- 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.
