danajohnflowsTight Hamstrings? Can’t event touch your toes?
Are you repeating the same hamstring stretch with no results and feel like the Tin man every time you bend over.
Most likely your are not stretching your hamstring. If you stretch your hamstring with a locked knee and feel a sensation in the back of the knee, you are irritating the nerve in the back of your knee.
Try these two variations of a bent leg hamstring stretch, first on a box or second in Pyramid pose. These two stretches (there are many other variations) specifically targets into your hamstrings, not the nerve behind your knee.
Step 1: Hold a passive stretch for 2 minutes. Increase the lordotic curve and puff the chest forward
Step 2: Ramp up a PAILs contraction (push your heel into the box or ground)
Step 3: Ramp up a RAILs contraction (pull yourself forward & deeper maintaining a flat back)
Step 4: Find a passive stretch with your new acquired range.
*Repeat other side
