How to Lengthen Your Hamstrings

“One of the most common injuries in sport is the hamstring strain, as the hamstring muscles are very susceptible to tears and strains.

Hamstring strains are most common among sports that require a high degree of speed, power and agility such as soccer, basketball, tennis and football.”


Hamstrings Lengthening

Your hamstrings are used in many sports, from cycling to running, from dance to yoga; your hamstrings take you where you need to go. This is why it’s important to take care of this sometimes ignored muscle group. In light of this, Eric Franklin has a great video lesson for you: How to lengthen your hamstrings using touch, imagery and movement. In the video he will first show you anatomically what we need to do to lengthen the hamstrings. He will also show you movements using touch in unexpected ways to increase your length and give release to your hamstrings.

Also in this video Eric will show you how other parts of your body effect your hamstrings, such as your pelvis.
