The pike stretch focuses primarily on the hamstrings.
Whether you can’t reach over and touch your toes, or your aiming for elite gymnastic skills you can do different versions of this stretch to suit you.
This is a forward fold at the hips reaching towards or beyond your toes. To make it easier you can raise your butt up on a block or chair. You can even start leaning back.
To make it harder you fold forward even more. Keep the back straight, lock out the knees and point the toes for the most difficult position.
This is one of just 12 stretches each with regressions and progressions found inside of 7 Minute Flexibility.
It’s doubtful that the stretches themselves are ground-breaking information to you. But the sequence and how it is trained just might be.
