Standing Hamstring Stretch Exercise:
Standing, cross one leg over the other, “locking” the back knee.
With good posture, bend over slowly and hold the stretch.
Notes: Posture and relaxation are paramount while stretching. This is a PASSIVE exercise and does not require force. Slow, meditative breathing through the diaphragm and patience will allow you to benefit the most from your stretch routine.
3-4 sets of 1-2 minutes per stretch are optimal. Remember, we are working towards an INCREASE in permanent flexibility.
