Overview

The leg up hamstring stretch is an exercise targeting the hamstrings. It is a simple stretch that can be done anywhere, and it is a great way to relieve tension in the hamstrings and improve flexibility. To do this stretch, lie on your back with your legs extended. Bend one knee and bring your foot towards your chest. Hold onto your shin or ankle with your hand and pull your leg towards your chest until you feel a stretch in your hamstring. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then repeat with the other leg.
