This is one of the more challenging stretches to do. Some people are not able to feel this but with patience and being relaxed this is a huge help in relaxing the hamstring.



  1. Place foam roller under hamstrings hips unsupported.
  2. Cross left leg over right leg to increase pressure. (optional)


  1. Draw abs in.
  2. Slowly roll from the back of knee toward the hips to find the most tender spot.
  3. Once identified, hold tender spot until the discomfort is reduced by at least 75 percent.
  4. Progress to the next tender spot and hold again.
  5. Repeat on opposite leg.
