Lying Down Hamstring Stretch - Videos & Instructions
This page provides details for the Lying Down Hamstring Stretch or Supine Hamstring Stretch. This stretch will help to improve the flexibility needed for high kicks (i.e. axe kicks). This stretch is also known as the Reclining Big Toe Pose in Yoga.
This hamstring stretch involves a martial artist lying flat on their back and slowly bringing their leg towards their chest. They often use their hands or a towel to assist in the stretch.
All stretches should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional martial arts stretches targeting the hamstrings, please visit the main Hamstring Stretches section.
