Hamstring Stretch Using the Stability Barre™ and Mini Stability Ball™

Focus: hamstrings, gluteus maximus, gastrocnemius, abdominals.

Start: Laying in a supine position, place your feet on the barre, roll hips up and place the 12” Mini Stability Ball under the lumbar spine. Imprint the pelvis into the ball, place the hands on the floor or around the sides and front of the ball for stability. Rest the ankle on the bar and keep the knees straight.

Inhale: reach one leg to the ceiling while stabilizing the other

Exhale: lower the leg back to the barre  

Repeat on the other side. 

To focus more on the calves, dorsi-flex the ankle as you lift the leg to the ceiling.
