What is the best way to stretch your hamstring?

Chicky O.
You can stretch the hamstring most effectively by stretching the leg that you want to stretch and to bend over at the waist and try to touch your toes without bad posture.

For me, I just stand up and bend down all the way until I feel my hamstrings stretching and hold it for 30 seconds, along with other stretches.

Search up the ATG elephant walk – the ATG system is the best system i’ve seen so far for improving muscle flexibility, mobility and tendon strength as well

All you need to do is:
1. Sit down on the floor
2. Make your legs straight
3. Take your hands and stretch them over, towards your feet or toes
4. Hold that position for about 5-10 seconds
(If you can't stretch to touch your toes. Don't worry. With time you WILL. So just take your time and trust your body!)

I cant think from the top of my head, but google is your friend. Just remember to go easy. Feel it stretch, but if it feels uncomfy or painfull pull back a bit.

i like the pull your knee in stretch and the sit and reach. i can really feel my hamstrings elongate and relax when i use those stretches after a long day or after a workout.

1. Sit on the floor with both legs out straight.
2. Extend your arms and reach forward by bending at the waist as far as possible while keeping your knees straight.
3.Hold this position for 15 to 30 seconds.
4.Relax back into the starting position.

Forward folds with a slight flex in your knees. bringing your chest to your quads.
If you are sitting with your legs extended, when you reach toward your flexed feet ,fold your torso down but remember to keep a straight back, no curving on the back. And as you are getting more comfortable , try straighten your legs.

Sit on the floor, straighten the leg you want to stretch. With the other leg bed it so your foot is somewhere around your knee but wherever is comfortable. It is critically important that you keep your back straight during the stretch even if you can't touch your foot it's far better to keep you back straight. Gently lean towards your foot, if you can reach it grab it but try to keep your foot relaxed. Aim for tension but not pain

Try sitting on the floor with one leg out straight and the other leg bent at the knee and position the sole of that foot against your opposite inner thigh. Extend your arms and reach forward over the one straight leg by bending at the waist as far as possible.
Push forward with at exhale breath for deeper stretch. Relax. Repeat with the other leg. After straightening both legs and keep together and reach for as far as can and hold for 10 – 15 secs.

In my opinion it is doing a mcouple of lunges and cardio to warm up the body and help your muscles expand faster and easier
