Seated Hamstring Stretch 1


This is a seated hamstring stretch. It is
nice to perform if you are stuck in a sitting position for a long time, like a long car
trip, or at the office. All you need is a chair, or a couch. What you are going to do
is sit on the edge. You are going to extend the leg out in front of you that you want
to stretch, sit up nice and tall, so that you are not slumping through your lower back.
You want to be all the way up, nice neutral spine position, then — maintaining that
position — you are going to slowly lean forward, until you feel a stretch in the back
of your thigh. Hold that position for about thirty seconds to a minute and then you can
back out of it. You want to make sure that when you are doing the stretch, you are not
letting your knee bend. If you find that your knee does keep bending, you can use your hands
to put gentle pressure above your knee cap on your thigh and help hold it in a straightened
position. And that is your seated hamstring stretch.
