Hamstring Stretch For Runners | SoleHealers
Most runners find this to be one of the best lower back stretches because it really stretches those tight hammys. Here's how you do it:
While seated on the floor, extend one leg out in front of you with your toes pointed up. Bend your other leg and place the sole of your foot against the knee of your extended leg. Now slowly lean forward using your hips while keeping your back straight and head up. Hold each position for thirty seconds then repeat the stretch on the other leg.
Bonus Hamstring Stretch:
Lie on your back and lift one leg up until your thigh and hip are at about a 90-degree angle. Keep the other leg relaxed and extended on the floor. Now slowly straighten your raised leg until you feel the stretch behind your thigh. Hold the position for thirty seconds then repeat the stretch on the other leg.
