Tight hamstrings are one of the most common things I see. This is because the hamstrings play a large role of stabilising the pelvis and can be over worked and tighten up if you have weak quads, hip flexors and core muscles. So I would advise you to stretch the hamstrings and combine this with our leg hover, hip flexor, pancake and core activation routines. Also strengthen the hamstrings in end range may be a good idea and this exercise demonstration is linked below along with the stretches.

Standing Hamstring stretch


Hold stretch for 30 seconds and perform 2 sets of contract/relax to increase range of movement

Floor hamstring routine


Follow the routine and repeat 2 to 3 sets per leg

Hamstring activation


3 sets of 10 - 30 second activation; rest 10 seconds between sets
