Seated Hamstring Stretch
Office workers and desk jockeys in the cube farm have something in common with the world's greatest athletes. Any guesses what that might be? If you said, "fame and fortune," you would be dead wrong. Bright lights and huge crowds cheering you on? Wrong again. Stiff, tight, sore hamstrings? Bingo. You got it! Whether you make millions or manage minions, a Seated Hamstring Stretch is just what the doctor- or trainer- ordered.
Sit on the leading edge of a sturdy chair and extend the leg you intend to stretch. Sit up tall, elongating your spine. Maintain that position and slowly lean forward until you feel the stretch in your hamstrings. Point your toes to the ceiling, keep your leg straight and don't bend you knees. Hold this position for 30 seconds before returning to the start position. Repeat on the opposite leg.
