Deep Hamstring Stretch
This stretch is a little bit intense, so take it slowly at first. Start in a standing position and your feet hip width apart, then with a straight back lean forward, bending your knees so that your upper body is resting on your thighs. Slide your fingertips under your heels, so that you’re cupping your heels in your palms, then just think about straightening those legs while keeping your chest glued to your thighs. Hold this stretch for 10 deep breaths, then release.
