Tight Hamstring: Tipover Tuck Hamstring Stretch

Tight hamstrings can lead to strains and pulls, so stay flexible with these post-workout stretches. This stretch is good for your hamstrings and also loosens tight shoulders.

  • Stand with your feet hip-distance apart. Interlace your hands behind your back. Keeping your legs straight, bend at the hips, tucking your chin, and bringing your hands over your head.
  • Relax the back of your neck, and if the stretch is too intense, release your hands, placing them on the backs of your thighs, and soften your knees. Hold for 30 seconds, and slowly roll up to standing.
