Week 2: Stretch Your Hamstrings!
Enjoy my first video of the New Year!
It's all about your hamstrings!
The hamstrings are made up of three long muscles: The biceps femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus, that run on the outside and inside of our legs.
These muscles stretch from your rear end to the backs of your knees. They not only help bend the knee, they stabilize the joint when walking and twisting.
Stretching daily is vital for pain relief, staying flexible and allowing blood flow for healing.
