4 HAMSTRING STRETCHES THAT YOU CAN DO TO REACH YOUR GOAL OF TOUCHING YOUR TOES!
I have always struggled with my hamstring flexibility. It has not something that has ever come naturally to me and I always need to work hard to keep them stretched out.
Have you ever noticed how some people are just super flexible even if they don’t regularly stretch? They can reach forward and place the palms of their hands on the floor, while you are struggling to touch your knees with your fingertips.
Some of us are just inherently stiffer in our muscles and joints than others. BUT the good news is that with regular stretching this can improve. In fact, if you do all the right stretches you will notice a difference in your range after just one stretching session.
The bad news? This will not last long! It is important to regularly stretch and for a decent amount of time.
So in today’s video I am going to show you 4 really effective hamstring stretches that when done right (and regularly) will help you achieve your goal of reaching your toes
Before you begin, make sure you do a warm up! Your stretching will be much more effective if you do and you are also at risk of an injury if you start stretching cold.
Try to perform all 4 of these stretches 3-4 times a week! I have provided all of the repetitions in the video! Best of luck!
