HAMSTRING STRETCH 1

The first stretch is called a dynamic stretch. This is because it is done while walking. In the cold winter days, this is often the preferred stretch, because it has the added benefit of allowing your body to warm up, while it stretches.

Start with one leg straight supporting your weight. Now place the other leg straight in front of you about six inches (Figure 6a).

Point the toe of your forward foot and with your opposite hand touch your pointed toe Figure 6b). Lower your toe and step with your supporting leg, placing it 6 inches ahead of the other. Point your toe as before, and touch it with the opposite hand. Continue to do this and walk about 25 yards. Remember, it is not a race. Speed does not improve stretching.
