#Wednesday workout – Hamstring stretch

Today’s #WednesdayWorkout is with Bootcamp Pilates Instructor, Maria Cruz as she takes us through steps to perform the best stretch for your hamstrings.

Targets: hamstrings.

  1. Lay on the floor, with both knees bent. Place both feet into the ring over the balls of your feet and lengthen the legs towards the ceiling.
  1. Hold the ring with both hands, palms facing you and the shoulder blades should be resting on the floor, neck tucked into the chest slightly and chest open.
  1. Exhale and pull the ring closer towards your chest until you feel a slight stretch in the back of your thigh.
  1. Hold for at least 20 seconds.
  1. If you do not have a Pilates ring then use a towel instead.
