TIGHT hamstring are THE worst! The tightness can make you feel all tied up and constricted which is NOT what we want when trying to attain a strong, flexible and supple body.
So, whats a girl/lady/bloke to do?
Stretch of course! Yes, you just have to suck it up and DO IT!
Do a Pilates Roll down Video HERE and see how it feels. Perhaps take a photo or get someone to film you.
Then practice the stretches below as often as you can over the next ten days. Get your friend, significant other to join you or even get a stretch challenge going within your workplace!
This video is an incredible look at the connective tissue fascia that we talk about when foam rolling or rolling the soles of the feet like in the previous exercise.
This stuff blows my mind!!
FOR HOME TIME:
Try to enjoy this and breathe. If meditation is not your thing, allow this to act as some gentle relaxation time... alternatively, if this is excruciating... again, breathe through it. Take your time and don't try to contort your body into horrible positions that feel shit house.
Modify to suit your body. As long as you feel a gentle stretch, you are making progress! Stay consistent and post some pics to show me!
