Hamstrings: Active Hamstring Stretch
The small movements in this stretch help you shake out the tightness in the backs of your legs.
- Standing on your right leg, step your left leg forward with your toes flexed.
- Reach your left hand to your toes, keeping your back flat — you should feel a gentle stretch in the back of your thigh. Hold this position for just a moment, then place your left foot next to your right as you return to standing upright.
- Switch sides to stretch your right hamstring. Continue alternating sides for 20 to 30 seconds.
