Hamstring Stretches Many people spend long hours seated at a desk at work or at a home office. One effect of prolonged sitting is tight hamstrings, which may increase your potential for injury when you’re away from your desk playing sports or even in your everyday routine. If you find that you don’t have much time to get away from your desk on a regular basis, try a few different hamstring stretches at your desk to keep your legs loose. If you are short on time, you can stretch both hamstrings at once. If you have a little more time, or just prefer to focus on one leg at a time, stretch your hamstrings one at a time. Call on the services of your desk for this more intense hamstring stretch. A little yoga at work may be just the ticket for your tight hamstrings. LIVESTRONG.COM Most Popular

These muscles perform essential functions that make it possible for you to run, walk, step and stand. Because these muscles are in constant use, even while sitting, they tend to get tight. This stretch is performed standing up, a benefit if performing the stretch on a track or uncomfortable or unclean surface. The forward-bend hamstring stretch places minimal strain on your lower back and thighs. This stretches the back of the thighs, buttocks and lower back.
