The runners stretch can be a great stretch for those who have tight hamstrings and a great precursor to being able to do the pike stretch. To perform the stretch do the following:
-Get into a seated position with one leg straight in front of you and one tucked into your body
-Lean forward and push your chest into your knee while keeping your front knee straight. Grab your foot of possible and hold
-When this is easy put both feet out in front of you and reach forward and grab your toes driving your chest into your knees.
Hold these stretches for 30 sec to 1min each side and repeat for 3 rounds.
