Lie on your back and bend your knees at a 90-degree angle. Ensure your feet are flat on the floor, 2-3 inches away from your glutes. Next, bring both knees into your chest. You want to ensure that your arms are wrapped around your knees to hug them in. Slowly get both hands to the floor on either side of your head or slightly behind it. Gently push with arms so that you feel a stretch in your hamstrings and hold for 10 seconds or less. Remember to repeat on the other side.
The idea is to do these exercises at least three times a week and to hold each position for as long as possible each time (at least 20 seconds). Simply put, you need to take care and watch over your body – it's worth the effort! We'd also recommend getting up and walking around every 10 minutes or so to get the blood flowing again.
