Hamstring stretch

The standing hamstring stretch progresses from basic hamstring stretches, bridging the gap between simple stretching and mobility exercises.


Teaching point:

This is a convenient stretch if the ground is cold or wet.

  • Stand on one leg with the other resting on a bench or similar
  • Tilt the hips forward to increase the stretch
  • Ease into the stretch and hold, as comfortable – don’t force the stretch!
  • Perform 2 sets of 30-second holds, gently easing into the stretch
  • Repeat a couple of times a day
