How to Do a Seated Split Stretch

Seated Split Stretch

We’re going to start off with one leg straight, all the way out. Then, you’re going to take your other leg and bend it all the way into you this way. Here, you’re going to reach for your ankle or your toe. If you’re less flexible, it’ll be your ankle. More flexible, grab onto that toe. Just stretch your body forward over your leg here as much as you can. You’re really going to feel this in the back of that leg, the hamstring, on the straight leg that you’re stretching out to. You want to hold it there for 20 to 30 seconds, breathing deep, in through your nose, out through your mouth, just focusing on stretching out that muscle.
