Standing hamstring stretch

The standing hamstring stretch is an exercise that stretches the hamstrings, the muscles that cover the back of the thighs. It involves looping a band around one foot and then pulling it, which produces an intense stretch in the hamstrings. It can be performed prior to training the lower body or playing sports, or as a restorative stretch anytime.
