Tight hamstrings after a week full of sitting at your desk? Release those babies!

Active tissue releases can be easily implemented at home, using a ball and firm surface. (Increasing the density or “hardness” of the ball + surface will increase the intensity of the release)

1️⃣ Sit up nice and tall and place a ball under your leg – focus on any tender points / areas that feel tight
2️⃣ Apply a compressive force to the ball by pushing your leg into it
3️⃣ While maintaining pressure on the ball, straighten out your leg. Hold 1-2 seconds
4️⃣ Reverse by bending your knee back to starting position
5️⃣ Repeat 10 times
