Hamstring and Gluteal Stretch Helps Improve Your Running Form

This stretch will help loosen your upper hamstrings, along with your gluteal muscles (buttocks).

  • Lie on your back. Bend your right knee towards your chest.
  • Once your right knee is at your chest, put your arms around your right shin and bring it as close to your body as you are able to.
  • Hold for 10-15 seconds, and let go and bring your right leg back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the other leg.
  • Continue for 1-3 reps on each leg.

Tight hamstrings can affect your pelvis, which in turn can cause poor running posture. Stretch your hamstrings and glutes for better running form!
