8 Crucial Post-Workout Stretches for Limber Body and Tight Muscles

8. Hamstrings / Inner Thigh / Lower Back Stretch


Starting Position:

Sit with your back straight, legs apart, knees bent or straight, depending on your flexibility.

The Stretch:

Keeping your back straight, exhale and lean forward at your hips with your arms extended. Go as close to the floor as you can without over-stretching. Hold for twenty seconds.

Stretch Tips:

In this program, you will do static stretching which involves holding a stretch position for about twenty seconds without bouncing. When you perform your stretch, take a deep breath in, and then exhale as you go into the stretch and hold the position for twenty seconds as you continue to breathe deeply. As you hold the stretch you can try to take it a bit deeper.
