Bent Leg Hamstring StretchBent leg hamstring stretch on the back targets the muscle fibres closer to the hip whereas the straight leg hamstring stretch targets the fibres nearer the knee.

  1. Lie on your back and pull the leg over keeping the knee very slightly bent until a gentle stretch is felt at the back of the leg.
  2. Again this should not be painful.
  3. Perform 2 sets of 30 seconds once or twice a day.
