Continuing with part 2. How Psoas can affect the hamstrings. This may lead to anterior tilt of the pelvis. This then may lead to shortening the QL. I place the arms overhead to elongate the low back The hamstring is responsible for flexing the knee. The way you sit shortens your Psoas and hamstrings. Here is a way to use rockpods and rockblades to relieve some tension on the medial heads. Watch my previous videos on Tommy pickles stretch to help lengthen them Manny here is a student with me at CUKC. He takes more classes than me which means he sits more than me.

Tweaked his knee training yesterday so got some rock sauce and rockpods on it. Even played with the rockblades and rocktape . Those kicks aren't from pain.

"I have always had tight hamstrings" I can't tell you how many times I hear this in the office. But are they really tight or do they just need some strength?? 🤔 .

Your feet are your body base, if you carry any health issues in them, it can effect other parts of your body. There is a network of connective tissue that runs from the bottom of your feet, up the back of your legs, up your back, neck and head. By rolling the feet you can relieve tension and many health issues such as plantar fasciitis, tight hamstrings, sciatica, etc. Tomorrow, Saturday, May 18th at 10:00 am we will explain more on this process at our Burbank Simply Stretch class.

:: Are Tight Hamstrings Causing Your Lower Back Pain? :: Your hamstrings are a group of 3 muscles at the back of your thigh (semimembranosus, semitendinosis, and biceps femoris). All 3 of these muscles attach to the pelvis and the cross the knee. Meaning they have the ability to control movements at both the hip and knee. The problem with short or tight hamstrings is they begin to pull on the pelvis and limit movement at your hip joint. This decreased movement at your hip joint will lead to increased movements occurring in your lower back. When your lower back has more pressure placed on it, the joints in the surrounding area become inflamed and swollen, leading to back pain. Read the full article (along with how to fix them) below: https:www.functionalmovementclub.com/why-tight-hamstring-may-be-causing-your-lower-back/ The Functional Movement Club: helping you Move Better, Feel Better, Be Better.

TIGHT HAMSTRINGS???? ⬇️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SOUND ON 🎙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The feeling of stiffness through the hamstring muscles is really common. Sometimes it is just a ‘feeling’, other times people do lack some serious range of motion through here! We spend a lot of time sitting on these things. Improving the sliding surfaces of tissue in this region can really help. 🤸‍♂️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’ve ever strained a hamstring, In amongst a well rounded rehab program, this is a good little exercise to do in between visits to your local health professional, to help break up that scar tissue and lengthen those fibres back up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Spend some time with this one and see if it feels better. Remember you should be able to straighten that leg and squeeze the quad every time you bring that leg up, if you’re not quite there yetyou’ve got some homework to do! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▪️Ball of choice under hamstring, anywhere from under the glute to just above your knee is fair game here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▪️You can manage how much pressure you put through leg by leaning forward or back with chest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▪️ let’s aim for 10-15 reps of bringing leg up and down ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ▪️ move ball up/down an inch or so each time and repeat process! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *if you’ve got a chair or bench you can sit on and get leg underneath you more even better! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Test/retest before/after either trying to touch toes, or jump on your back and do a straight leg raise and see the improvements you’ve made. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➡️ Tag someone who needs some hamstring work or has dreams of touching their toes!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ themobilitycoach ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ hamstringmobility tighthamstrings hamstringpain hamstringpainrelief hamstringrehab prehab rehabexercise mobilitywod thecrossfitchamber themobilitycoach crossfitwarmup rangeofmotion injuryrehab injuryprevention mobilitywork mobilityexercises mobilitychallenge mobilitydrills mobilitywork deskstretch healthcentralwa hamstrings hamstringstrain hamstringflexibility strengthandflexibility perthfitfam

Lifting the heels gives standingforwardfold a completely different feel. • • Pic 1 (working on taking better pics 😬😬) swipe right. Begin by lifting your heels in Mountain Pose and hold 3-5 breaths. Hinge half way down and hold another 3-5 breaths (swipe right again for pic). I like to use a block between my inner thighs for more muscular activation and overall stability. Repeat both variations a few times and then descend all the way into uttanasana letting the heels touch down once you arrive in your expression of the pose. • • Why do this? • • 1️⃣ This is a cue I learned from Doug Keller. Doug is an adjunct professor in the Master’s Degree program in Yoga Therapy at the Maryland University of Integrative Health. He shares that by lifting the heels (you can bend your knees) we mobilize the hip joint to move. This should make it easier to hinge at the hips for people with tighthamstrings. • • 2️⃣ Due to the fact that lifting the heels places you in a more precarious position, the *deep core* is activated. Notice how you’re forced to slow down and find more control as you lower down. You can read a little more about this in week two of my favorite cues on my site.

𝑅𝑒𝒸𝑜𝓋𝑒𝓇𝓎 𝒮𝑒𝓇𝒾𝑒𝓈 𝒟𝒶𝓎 𝟤: 𝐿𝑜𝓌𝑒𝓇 𝐵𝑜𝒹𝓎 𝒮𝓉𝒶𝓉𝒾𝒸 𝒮𝓉𝓇𝑒𝓉𝒸𝒽𝑒𝓈 Whether you’re a runner, cyclist, kickboxer, bodybuilder, power lifter, part time ninja, or general exerciser, stretching should be part of your regiment. Like the theme of this week’s recovery series, stretching will help increase flexibility and mobility, and reduce your risk of injury, which will overall keep you in your game of choice for longer. So today I’m going to cover some general lower body stretches that you can easily do at home, the gym, in your hotel room, wherever. It’s not an exhaustive list but it’s enough to cover one stretch per muscle group/joint from the hips down. SWIPE ➡️➡️ to follow along: 1. Lying on a mat, with one leg straight, hug your knee to your chest or as close to it as you can for a little 𝐡𝐢𝐩 𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐱𝐨𝐫 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧. Hold for up to 30 sec or longer as necessary and switch sides. 2a. TOP: Staying lying with one leg straight, lift leg straight into the air and reach for your toes without letting your neck/head/spine/low back leave the mat. If any part lifts off, grab a strap or resistance band and toss it over your foot and reach up as far as you can 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬. Hold for up to 30 seconds. 2b. BOTTOM: Keeping everything the same, try to make the slightest move of your leg towards your body. This will stretch out your IT band. 3a. 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐠𝐥𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐬, you can do a few things: standing against a wall, form a figure 4 with your legs by resting your ankle on the opposite quad above your knee (never on it) and sit back feeling a stretch by pressing down on the knee forming the figure 4. The more you sit back and put pressure on the knee, the more you’ll feel the stretch. The side view shows the standing leg should be at about a 90 degree angle. 3b. If you’re unable to balance this move standing, you can also lie on your back and get into the same position by lifting one leg into the air at 90* and the other leg forming the figure 4 and press your hand against that knee. Here you’ll also get a stretch in your abductor. ⬇️⬇️CONTINUED IN COMMENTS⬇️⬇️

PASCHIMOTTANASANA - Tight hamstrings? Sore back? Find forward folds difficult? Me too! Many other things came easy, but to this day i rarely find myself in the state of an insta-worthy-pancake 🤷‍♂️ Which is totally fine of course! Yoga-pose envy can become a weird complex. Everyone has a different body shape and constitution. Different challenges and strengths. Whatever you can do is always enough:) . The number one tip i’d give is to use your breath to guide you into the pose. Not ideation, force or strain. Breath, spaciousness and allowing. Breath into the lower back, visualise the hamstrings soften on the out breath. Observe where your tension comes from and move into it conscientiously. Allow yourself time for the process to unfold. An most of all ENJOY THE PROCESS! Good luck:) lavanayoga . paschimottanasana melbournevegan melbournelovesyoga yogatutorial mounteliza hamstrings tighthamstrings

Hamstring Stretches 🏋️‍♀️ . Alright so these are quite “stretches” in the traditional sense or are any of them “new”, so my apologies to the anyone out there who was expecting some nice, easy relaxing stretches.🤷‍♂️ . 👉Still reading? Great 🏋️‍♀️Are you someone who’s always stretching, but still tight? . Try LOADING the muscle instead of just wailing away at another stretch . Passive stretching has been shown to: ⬇️stretch sensitivity (Pain w/ stretching) ⬆️Analgesic effect (temporary pain relief) . 👍TBH if you’re looking to get a little, temporary pain relief, then just keep on stretching Passive stretching has NOT been shown to: ⬆️muscle length(yes you’re not lengthening your muscles) ⬆️performance ✅prevent injury . 🤯If you’ve been stretching your whole life without these assumptions, I’ll give you a second to pick your jaw up off the floor 🏋️‍♀️If you’re looking to control the active range of motions we need for your activities/daily life, passive stretching won’t help you. Loading the muscle as it actively moves through its full ROM is a better option for long term mobility ✅How much, if any, do you stretch in your workout routine? .

Hamstrings sore and tight after working out? ✅ Here is a way you help turn on your quads and get your hamstrings more mobile and ready for movement. Use this exercise as a warm up to training. ✅ The purpose of a warm up is to get your body ready for moving. Mobility might be a part of your warm up but only if some joints are stuck. ✅ Your warm up should be getting you ready to lift, not necessarily improving your mobility.

Low back pain? One of the causes could be tight hamstrings and hip flexors! Yoga and strength training in general help ease my chronic back pain but I like to focus on my hammies and hips especially. Exercises that allow your hamstrings to stretch while working (think squats, Romanian deadlifts, curls, etc) are especially great in addition to stretching after you workout. Do you have back pain too? What do you do to help alleviate it? halfpidgeon babycobra floorbow hamstringcurls donkeykicks cowfacepose tighthamstrings backpain yogaforbackpain iamasweatybetty motherofdragons

Do you have tighthamstrings ? Or lowerbackpain ? 🦵 This is a great stretch for hamstrings to loosen up the backs of your legs and relieve some tension in your lowerback 🦵 Lay back on the floor, a yoga mat, a grassy patch outside, or your bed, with feet flat and bent knees. Relax your head, face, neck and shoulders. 🦵 Have at the ready a yoga strap, a scarf, hand towel, or even a dog leash! 🦵 Bring one knee to the chest and wrap strap (or makeshift strap) around the ball of the foot. Slowly extend the leg up toward the ceiling or sky. 🦵 Depending on how tight your hamstrings are, you may need to give yourself more slack in the strap and move the foot down and away from the upper body. 🦵 Keep your leg straighter rather than bent, and if elbows are bent, inch your hands up both sides of the strap so your arms don’t have to work so hard, but keep shoulders on the mat. It should feel like a good stretch but not painful. Be compassionate with yourself and know how to discern between pressure and pain. 🦵 breathe . Deep inhalations followed by deep exhalations, rhythmic and even. Stay here for as long as you like, and when ready, release and repeat on the other side. 🦵 Want more great yoga tips, or one on one yoga in person in Orlando area, or remotely via FaceTime or Skype?

~TIGHT HAMSTRINGS~ - A common complaint is the experience of tight hamstrings. If this is you and those tight Hammies are bringing you down, then try this: - This drill is an outside ankle tilt and you’re going to stretch it! - Why? - Because this joint is neurally correlated to your outside hamstring. Often times, unjamming this joint provides greater freedom in the hamstring. - It’s really simple and can be done anywhere, just pop a shoe 👞 off if you can. - INSTRUCTIONS 1️⃣ Assess hamstring tightness and rate it (1-10), 10 being tightest. 2️⃣ Lengthen Up 3️⃣ Step forward with one foot 4️⃣ Roll ankle out, stacking big toe over pinky toe. 5️⃣ Return to neutral, perform 4-6 reps 6️⃣ Reassess hamstring tightness - Did it get better? Stay the same? Get worse? - If it got better or stayed the same, keep doing theses as often as possible. If it got worse then just avoid these for now. - If this helped, please give it a share!

Today in the studio we did this. If you have tight hamstrings, they’re gonna eventually start tugging on your lower back. You don’t need the ropes, you can do this with a mans/bathrobe tie or yoga belt. Turn the feet to face a wall. Make sure the foot on the ground is pressed into a wall and kept active by turning the toes towards your nose! Try it - let me know how you get on. Prevention is better than cure people. londonyogateacher backpainrelief feelgoodyoga

Stretching before and after your workout can help with range of motion. This first video is for everyone out there that has a desk job. My hamstrings are always tight and that causes lower back pain. No matter how much I foam roll, it just doesn't work for me. So try out this amazing stretch. You will feel it in your glutes as well. Second video, believe it or not is not only for your feet. Hits the pressure point and releases the tightness in your hamstring. 😉. Grab yourself a tennis ball and you can try this at work. stretchingiskey tighthamstrings tennisballrollout

By Request: Help for Tight Hamstrings, We all get this way from sitting too much for work/study/driving This is a technique called reciprocalinhibition ~ Which makes use of the body’s natural divine design. We wouldn’t be able to move well without this natural mechanism. Basically, when one set of muscles fire, the opposite/antagonist muscles must release . Example: Walking/Running, when your Quadriceps engage to extend your legs, Your hamstrings must release. If they remained tight they would be working against your need to move. So this is a natural mechanism we can harness to our benefit for the purpose of stretching/releasing muscles . So, To help release very tight hamstrings, You have the option and I recommend- first working the opposing muscle group, the Quadriceps. You can do this in a variety of ways, a Wall Sit, some Squats, or for example here I’m doing “lightning bolt” (in English) yoga posture, alternating between Forward bend, and Lightning bolt (basically a squat position with arms overhead, hands clasped) Try to gently roll the shoulders down away from the ears~ they always want to creep up and we don’t like creepers now do we, no. ;P Other tips: low back naturally tends to overarch, Really try to fight this, pull your bellybutton in engage your abs (to support your spine!) . You can enter lightning bolt rolling up from forward bend, or simply by sitting into it from already standing~ good to repeat at least 2x We’ll see how much loads in 1 min and I will follow up with the rest.

By Request: Help for Tight Hamstrings, We all get this way from sitting too much for work/study/driving This is a called reciprocalinhibition ~ It is the body’s natural divine design. We wouldn’t be able to move well without this natural mechanism. Basically, when one set of muscles fire, the opposite/antagonist muscles must release . Example: Walking/Running, when your Quadriceps engage to extend your legs, Your hamstrings must release. If they remained tight they would be working against your need to move. So this is a natural mechanism we can harness to our benefit for the purpose of stretching/releasing muscles . So, To help release very tight hamstrings, You have the option and I recommend- first working the opposing muscle group, the Quadriceps. This will naturally queue the hamstrings to relax more. You can do this in a variety of ways, a Wall Sit, some Squats, or for example here I’m doing “lightning bolt” (in English) yoga posture, alternating between Forward bend, and Lightning bolt (basically a squat position with arms overhead, hands clasped) Try to gently roll the shoulders down away from the ears~ they always want to creep up and we don’t like creepers now do we, no. ;P Other tips: low back naturally tends to overarch, Really try to fight this, pull your bellybutton in to engage your abs (to support your spine!) We’ll see how much loads in 1 min and I will follow up with the rest. Always keep the knees soft / aka slightly bent, never locked out or hyperextended. I do encourage gently bending and then working toward straightening the knees and legs. This all takes time so just be patient and gentle with yourself.

🛠CORE ACTIVATION FOR INSTANT FLEXIBILITY? . 🤔 Why does activating the core allow for more range of motion? .  1️⃣ Pelvic positioning. Activating the core puts a slight posterior tilt moment into the pelvis. 2️⃣ Your brain / spine get the signal that they are stable and protected. This makes them allow more joint range of motion.  3️⃣ This is why "brace your abs" is usually the first cue before lifting a weight. 1.) it protects the spine 2.) it allows more range of motion. Try playing with deep / subtle core activation drills and tag TheGotROM so I can see your journey of flexiiblity To make PERMANENT flexibility gains you need a comprehensive mobility practice. Check out the program at the bottom of this post for more. ❤️ Are you working on your splits?

I’d love to be able to show you some wonderful, bendy yoga poses, but that isn’t me! 😆 I’m wobbly, not flexible, & I have no idea what I’m doing. So here’s a glimpse into my yoga session today. 🧘🏻‍♀️ So I can look at yoga people and say “I can’t do what you do.” I’m ok with that. I do my best at yoga & enjoy the stretch. However, I like weights & HIIT. So you do what you do and I do what I do, and we can all do it together. That’s how it works, friends. It’s not about being better than someone else. It’s about being better than you were yesterday. 🧘🏻‍♀️ So do you do yoga? What’s your favorite pose? 🧘🏻‍♀️ discoveryourstrengthfitness yogaprogress yogabeginner imnotbendy imnotflexible tighthamstrings wobblylegs progressnotperfect betterthanyesterday letsdoyoga letsdoittogether weareallinthistogether laughatyourself havefunwithit doireallylooklikethat

大腿後側怎麼放鬆?🧐🧐🧐 • 跑完步,划船後,或練完大腿感覺大腿後側緊緊的嗎? 試試看著個放鬆方式。 需要器材:壺鈴,箱子或硬的椅子,硬式按摩球 🔑先坐在箱子上,把球放在大腿下面。 🔑用壺鈴壓住大腿,就會感覺到後側伸展 🔑移動球的位置,可以從膝蓋後側按到屁股的位置 🔑ㄧ邊按90秒再換邊 • 覺得這個伸展有幫助嗎? 可以儲存POST或寄給需要放鬆的朋友!

Beef Jerky HAMSTRINGS ⁉️🥴 ~~~~~~~~ Watch & SAVE this Video🔥 ~~~~~~~~ Cycling & Running takes it toll on the Hamstringsall 3 of them. •• ✅ Cycling specifically requires the Hamstring to fire both Concentrically & Eccentrically through out the ENTIRE 360 degrees of the pedal stroke. •• It is crucial for PERFORMANCE to keep those muscle fibers pliable and ready for action. •• 1️⃣ Banded Hamstring & Hip Floss 2 minutes each side Daily Step in side band with 1 leg Move forward & have banded leg set forward Place hands on floor Flex & Extend Lead leg and feel the release on the High Hamstring •• 2️⃣ Elevated Foam Roll 2 - 3 minutes each side Daily I like the elevation because it applies more pressure and gives you a lot of different angles to seek & destroy those Hot Spots. Roll back and forth, side to side and you can also flex & extend the knee Use your upper body to control the amount of pressure being applied •• Cheers to Recovery, Wes mobility hamstring hamstringstretch hamstringstraining hamstringrehab hamstringmobility cycling injuryprevention cyclingtips running runningrehab runningprehab tighthamstrings floss foamroll performance getfaster beginnertriathlete
