Stretching is so critical, but easy to put off. Trainer James is a big fan of the Hamstring Door Stretch and walks us through the steps this month.
June’s Move of the Month: Hamstring Door Stretch
Our trainers recommend doing this move three to four times every day to help alleviate back pain and keep your hamstrings from becoming too tight.
Start by finding a door in your home or office. Get on the ground on your back, put one leg through the doorway. Put your opposite leg up on the frame. Try to get your bottom as close to the frame as possible and keep the other leg straight against the floor; don’t bend those knees. You’ll hold for a minimum of 30 seconds before you switch to the other leg.
