Activity: Proximal hamstring stretch

200-120

Summary:

An often overlooked stretch focusing on the proximal (upper) aspect of the hamstrings (biceps femoris, semi-membranosus/tendinosus) as well as glute max.

Description:

  • standing upright with one foot up on a foot-stool or bench (hip flexed up to 90 degrees)
  • maintaining a neutral spine, flex the pelvis forward to feel a stretch in the proximal (upper) part of the hamstrings (biceps femoris, semi-membranosus/tendinosus)
  • to increase the stretch to the hamstring, start with the foot further away by straightening the knee somewhat
  • NOTE: if any pain or discomfort is felt in the front of the hip during this stretch, do not push through
