Hamstrings

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.

I think that these are great ideas! I read a LOT of fitness tips! I have the roller, but honestly haven't used for lack of ideas. However, I think that this is a very beneficial idea for sure and going to share it with a few family members that it would help, as well. Thanks!
