Hamstring Stretch


Many people struggle with tight hamstring muscles in the back of their thigh. This can be a result of weakened core muscles, sitting for long periods (i.e. desk based or driving), or previous injuries.


It is a good stretch to do to help release tension in the muscle and lengthen it out, as well as relieving tension through other areas of the body such as the lower back and behind the knee. Having a slight bend in the knee helps to get an even stretch throughout the full length of the muscle.


If you have had a pulled or strained hamstring muscle, then regular stretching helps the muscle fibers to heal in a more uniform direction, increasing future movement as well as reducing the amount of scar tissue forming around the area.
