Hamstrings (wall)

  • A wall or doorway is necessary
  • Place straight right leg up the wall and straight left leg on the floor, through a doorway with the left inner legs touching the door frame.
  • Low and mid back, buttocks, head and neck relaxed towards the floor
  • Move right buttocks towards the wall as more stretch is needed
  • This stretch is great for those that have difficulty in stretching their hamstrings because it is relaxed and can be held for long periods (5 minutes is not unusual, start with 2 minutes and works towards more). Also, you do not need to use your muscles to hold this stretch.
