Ham_stretch

Poor posture and sitting too much can tighten up the backs of your thighs. Test yourself to see if this area feels tight. Lie on your bed or on the floor. Extend one leg up straight. Holding onto the back of your thigh, gently pull your leg towards your body. Keep your knee straight. Try to hold for 20-30 seconds. If you have a hip replacement, do not allow the hip to flex more than 90 degrees.
