Hamstrings Double Stretch
Testing the flexibility of both hamstrings at the same time has been known as the standard bench mark of flexibility for generations. In yoga this position is practiced standing, sitting, laying down, etc. Here is a list of some of them. Padangusthasana (Big Toe Pose), Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend), Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend)
Besides Yoga, being able to stretch both hamstrings at the same time comes in hand in variety of sports. From Diving to Gymnastics, From Dance to Martial Arts, etc.
The challenge here is obvious. Two legs have to be stretched at the same time, with all the muscles restricting the hip flexion, are now times two. Because of such a high resistance, trying to master double hamstsrings stretch incorrectly, will force the more flexible part of the body to give, and unfortunately that is the lower back. In other words, standard forced stretch method, bring a high level possibility of injured lower back.
Here is another reason that makes this hamstrings flexibility position so difficult. You CAN'T cheat. When stretching one leg, you can twist the spine, move the leg to allow the lateral hams to shorten, etc. Can't do that with double forward bend. The frequently tight lateral hamstrings will show itself.
We recommend that you take a look at the Single Leg Hamstrings Programs first, prior to starting this program. If you can hold your toes in double legged forward bend and need a way to progress, than you can use this program.
Our approach is different from let's pull hard and hope for the best standard approach. Each muscle is isolated. (More than a dozen of them want to stop you from achieving your double hamstrings stretch) Once they are isolated, kinesiological stretching and reciprocal inhibition is used to bypass the stretch reflex and lengthen the muscles, quickly and easily.
