Linda Baffa | 1min

Most of us live with tight hamstrings because we use them all the time for daily functions such as sitting, walking, standing, etc... When a muscle feels tight, it is important not to overstretch it, because it can lead to tearing. Sometimes tearing happens instantly and sometimes it happens over a long period of time. Give your tight hamstrings a break with these simple modifications. Remind yourself that your body's flexibility will adjust and become more limber with time, practice and patience, but in the mean time, be kind to your hamstrings and keep your body safe from injury!
