We have several techniques here at Lastics to really get into your hamstrings and stretch them like you've never felt before. This is one of them. If your leg doesn't make it to 90 degrees when you straighten it, just lower you hands to behind your thighs, which will lower you leg too. The most important thing is to hold your thigh still against your rib until is starts to shake. Don't just unfold the leg without keeping the resistance on it. The other common mistake is to release the flex in the foot too early. Make sure you don't point your foot until after you have fully extended your leg.
Even though Lastics started out as a technique to increase flexibility, it’s rooted in ideas that go beyond stretching the body. It’s about stretching yourself in every way possible, period. So creating a place where we can explore, learn, share and grow together makes a lot of sense. We hope you’ll join the conversation as we pursue living life and feeling good from the inside out!
