Tight Hamstring: Scissor Hamstring Stretch

Easy to do anywhere and safe for injured backs, this hamstring stretch is great if you're really tight.

  • Stand with your feet together. Step your right foot back about two feet and bend forward from your hip joint, keeping your back and both legs straight. After holding for 30 seconds, switch sides.
