3 WAYS TO STRETCH THE HAMSTRINGS BETTER
Everyone has felt tightness in their hamstrings at one point or another and attempted to stretch it out. Unfortunately, most of us have been doing it 🙅 wrong our whole lives, just getting a stretch in the back of the knee and having never felt a real hamstring stretch.
Well...good news. That's all about to change.
There's 3 points you have to 🎯 hit. First, start with the knee bent. Second, anteriorly tilt the pelvis. And lastly, pull your butt backwards while you fold forward at the waist.
This can really help anyone who needs some extra hamstring ROM, especially those you with chronic strains.
Some general guidelines. 👉 If you have a recent strain, start with low intensity stretching for 10 to 30 seconds to get some elasticity in the muscle. For those of you who are more chronic or just lack ROM, hold for 1 to 2 minutes to increase ↔ flexibility and back it up with some slow and controlled Romanian Deadlifts to strengthen the range of motion.
