Standing hamstring stretch:
In teaching, I have noticed one of the tightest areas for most people is the hamstrings. Tight hamstrings can affect the back, knees, hips and more! This exercise is a safe way to stretch the hamstrings without putting stress on the lower back. Increasing flexibility in the hamstrings takes perserverance and consistency.
1. Stand facing a wall an arm's reach away
2. Fold foward from the hips and reach into the wall - step feet back so arms are straight. The back is in neutral position and legs are straight.
