Looking for a great way to help stretch your hamstrings? Try a hamstring stretch with a strap.

To perform a hamstring stretch with a strap:

  1. Lie on your back, and place a belt or dog leash around the ball of your foot. Bend the knee of the leg you are not stretching to help relax your back.

  2. Keeping your knee straight, pull your leg up with the strap until you feel a stretch behind your knee/leg.
