  • Lying on the back & crossing the entailed leg on top of the other one.
  • Now with the right & left knee bended, the duo hands are to be placed beneath the knee of the lower-placed leg & in a gentle manner pulling the underside leg towards the trunk.
  • The right & left thighs are to be held narrowly till a stretching is sensed in the buttocks.

A fine way of stretching the hamstrings is by:

  • Lying flat on the back, grasping the leg at the back of the knee and hip flexing perpendicularly & knees bended.
  • Endeavour at knee straightening while pointing toes back towards yourself.
  • Holding for half a minute and repeating once or twice daily.
