If you have ever tried to touch your toes without bending the knees, then today’s exercise may seem familiar to you! The only difference – we will be trying to touch the ground instead of our feet!
‘Standing Ground Touch’ is a great hamstring pre-workout warm-up that really loosens up the muscles and gets them ready for exercise.
Additionally, there are many variations of this exercise, making it very versatile and easily changeable to suit our needs (stay tuned for a variation on this exercise later in the week!)
Fitness Goal: try and perform 2 sets of 2 reps for this exercise, with each rep lasting around 15-20 seconds in the position in the video.
Tip: have a go at shifting (or moving) your body slightly every few seconds. This might help you feel more relaxed whilst doing the stretch, as well as potentially increasing the performance of your hamstrings (see yesterday’s post for more!)
