List of Hamstring Stretches

This page provides details on a wide variety of hamstring stretches. Your hamstrings are located at the back of your legs and run from your glutes to your knees. Hamstring stretches are used by martial arts students for better flexibility, to achieve higher kicks (i.e. axe kicks) and to reduce the potential of a pulled hamstring. A pulled hamstring can limit a martial artist's training for weeks.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional martial arts stretches targeting other areas of the body, please visit the main Martial Arts Stretches or Yoga sections.
