Stretch your hamstrings with resistance bands; learn simple stretches for long muscles, flexibility, and protection from injury in this free video.
The next stretch I'm going to show you is for the hamstring. At this time we're going to be on the floor and you're going to need your resistance tube. You want to lay on your back, and you're going to straighten one leg, you're going to bring up your other leg. Now you can just stretch as effective without the tube. You're going to hold onto the back of your thigh, your hamstring. You're going to gently pull your knee in towards your chest. And some of you may not have the range of motion that I have. Some of you may only be able to come up that high and that's OK. Try to keep your leg straight and if you'd like a little bit more of a calf stretch, you can flex your ankle, extend, flex. To add a little more intensity to the stretch, you can wrap your resistance tube around your arch and repeat the same stretch. Now, with the resistance tube you'll be able to bring your knee or bring your leg a little closer in towards your body for a deeper stretch of the hamstring. If you'd like to stretch your inner thigh as well, you can very carefully let your leg drop to the side, and now you're going to feel it in the inner thigh.
