Tune-Up Tuesday Episode 38: Should You Stretch Your Tight Hamstrings

When it comes to tight hamstrings, there is no one solution to solving the issue.  But there is one thing I can safely say, more times than not, stretching is not the answer.

Your tight hamstrings are not tight at all.  What you are feeling is a perception of tightness.  Your nervous system is making you feel tight to prevent you from moving into positions it doesn't deem safe.  

If you don't know where to turn after stretching, watch the video below for one of my favorite drills to decrease hamstring "tightness."
