The beloved hamstring stretch! Take advantage of all the blood flowing through your body after a workout, walk or run. The muscles that connect to the to your butt bones span a lot of time in a shortened/contracted position and this can affect back, hip and knee comfort.
Deep stretches, like the one shown, should be done when your are “warm” but you can progress the stretch by backing further away form the door jamb. Take 3-5 slow deep breathes, giving permission to your back side to release into the floor-letting go, finding space.
Picture breathing “breathing down” into your pelvic floor-the space between your butt bones. Intensify the stretch by straightening the other leg down on the floor. Your pelvic floor, back and hips will thank you.
