Doing Hamstring Stretches Correctly

Here's another simple stretch that we often do improperly. This is Dr. Bob Donatelli from, and the stretch is for your hamstrings. Why do I like this video so much? Because he explains not only how to do the stretch, but why we want to do it this way. It's basic Schoolhouse Rock -- "Knowledge is power!"

Seriously, hamstrings cause a lot of back (and swing) problems, so learning to stretch them properly is important. Best of all, you don't have to stand on your head!

I've added a new link list called "Some Useful Golf Links" just above my blog lists, and GolfersMD is the charter member. You might want to check out the site, as it looks pretty good.


  1. I'm a big fan of Lots of really cool and helpful things to do and not to do. (I just wonder how many tables he has to have to get that hammy stretch right for everybody) :-)

  2. I bet there's only one table... but GOBS of different size boxes to stand on!

    And thanks for the feedback on their site. Sometimes it's hard to guess what may be helpful and what just looks good. I don't want people to waste their time when they check a link from this site, you know?
