As your foot strikes the ground, your hamstrings contract to counterbalance the forward motion of your body. "Sometimes pushing too hard too soon can cause a strain in them," Dr. Metzl says.

Hamstrings Roll

  • Sit on floor, back of right knee atop roller, palms flat near hips. Cross left ankle over right ankle and lean torso back slightly.
  • Roll body forward until roller reaches glutes; roll back to start. Continue for 60 seconds. Switch sides; repeat.
