Two Leg Hamstring Stretch

The Two Leg Hamstring Stretch is a beneficial warm-up or cool-down exercise to improve flexibility in your legs. You'll be stretching both legs at the same time, so it's a time-efficient exercise. It specifically targets the hamstrings, the large muscles located at the back of your thighs. This stretch is ideal for athletes, runners, and anyone who wants to improve their lower body flexibility and prevent injuries.
