Top 3 Hamstring Stretches

How do I stretch my hamstrings? This is a common question I get from patients and athletes. Tight hamstrings can often lead to problems such as lower back pain, hip pain and knee pain if they are not treated appropriately. In this video I address the top 3 stretches that I give to my patients to help improve the flexibility of their hamstrings.

Tight hamstrings can be caused by a number of reasons. Some of them can be your genetics, habits (do you sit most of the day), and activity level. It is important to note that you should be doing dynamic stretching before a workout by moving throughout the stretch and static stretching after a workout with holds of 30-60 seconds.
