Tight hamstring HACK! Yes! That's right! This will work for 80% of you out there with tight hamstrings. Especially for those who tend to round their back in forward bends.
1. TEST hamstring flexibility -cold- by trying to touch your toes.
2. Then from table top position, walk hands a little further out and lean forward so hips are no longer over the knees.
3. Arch the back by lifting the tailbone and retract the shoulder blades as much as possible.
4. With chin to chest, shoulder blades pinching together and tailbone lifting HOLD for 90 sec or 2 minutes. This shouldn't feel good (just in case you were wondering if you are doing it right!😉)
5. Then RE-TEST hamstrings.
If you felt and instant change in length of your hamstrings then the problem isn't your hamstrings it's your back. The cure ... more backbends, less rounding and less hamstring stretching.👍🏻
Hope this helps. I will get on LIVE tomorrow to explain more!
