Healthy Hamstrings

Like most athletes, skiers are notorious for having tight, inflexible hamstrings.  In sports, tight hamstrings are a cause of low back pain and knee pain. However, just because this is common, doesn’t mean that there is no solution.

Hold a stretch, like the band hamstring stretch in the video above, for one minute each leg every day and see your hamstring flexibility improve. It will take time and consistency, but the winter months are a perfect time to focus on recovery and mobility to be ready for the upcoming ski season.
