Crossover Leg Stretch

Crossover Leg Stretch

*Always check with a doctor prior to beginning a new workout or health regimen

This exercise stretches out your hamstrings individually, elongating tight muscles. Try not to reach farther than your back feels comfortable.  

  • Stand with feet together, arms by sides.
  • Cross right foot over left and bend over from waist, reaching fingers toward toes.
  • Once you feel a pull in your hamstrings, hold stretch for 15 to 30 seconds.
  • Stand back up, switch legs and repeat.
