Fitness Tip

Many adults complain about lower-back pain. One cause is tight hamstring muscles. Here’s a safe, simple way to stretch them. Sit tall on the floor with legs extended in front of you, feet neutral. Keeping your chest open and back long, lean forward from your hips and slide your hands toward your ankles until you feel slight tension in
the back of your legs. For additional assistance, loop a towel around your feet and pull yourself toward your ankles. Avoid rounding your back or locking your knees. Hold stretch for 15-30 seconds and repeat four to five times, three days per week.
