Can My Hamstrings Get Flexible Without Stretching?

Posted by Paul Zaichik on

I heard that you can get your hamstring flexible without stretching it. Is that true?

Many people are interested in the hamstring flexibility and this question of “Can my hamstrings get flexible without stretching?” has been asked numerous times over the years.

Just last week someone asked me this question. To which I had my own question. “If you are not going to stretch your muscles, what are you going to do, to get them flexible?”

If you are not going to stretch your muscles, what are you going to do, to get them flexible?

Some people believe that it is possible to get hamstrings flexibility simply by doing relaxation, mediation and breathing exercises. Others believe that massage will loosen up the hamstrings without stretching them. Still others believe that sitting in warm water with Epsom salt will loosen up the hamstrings. Or that doing range of motion exercises, strength exercises, etc, will loosen up the hamstrings.

So this individual told me that he heard that it's the range of motion exercises that can get the hamstrings flexible without stretching them.

I was curious to see what he meant by stretching the hamstrings. Was it passive stretching, partner stretching, pnf stretching, ZST stretching, dynamic stretching? Not all stretching is the same.

I wanted to ask him what he meant by range of motion exercises. Because, in the EasyFlexibility system, range of motion exercises, such as a deadlift is different than a downward facing dog walk or L-inching.

Want to improve your hamstrings flexibility right now?

The Zaichik Stretching Techniques (ZST’s) called ~Peace~, is responsible for thousands upon thousands flexible hamstrings around the world. ~Peace~ targets both the medial and the lateral hamstrings, and takes advantage of the fact that the hamstrings is a flexor of the knee and extensor of the hip, no rotation takes place when performing this ZST.

Stretching
& Flexibility Method that will Change Your Life Forever!

The Magic of
the Zaichik Stretching Method
  • Scientifically designed by a world-renowned fitness & flexibility expert Paul Zaihick, with over 30 years’ experience in the field.
  • Isolates muscle actions one by one (to ensure they are doing their job).
  • Takes care of the muscles that are tighter first
  • Allows easier focus, since you are working on one specific area at a time
  • You can do it all on your own! No pushing or bouncing is necessary, not even a partner!
  • Remember that phrase “No Pain – No Gain?”, well it doesn’t apply to our method. Each stretch is designed to be PAIN-FREE! Thereby eliminating discomfort and allowing you to continue training to achieve faster results.
  • Totally safe, since it was designed according to what is natural for your body.
  • Gains are permanent and steady
  • It is very enjoyable to do
  • Results are visible right away since the stretch reflex is avoided, which means you’ll get to show off your flexibility in no time!

If you want to improve your flexibility as fast as possible you would combine stretching exercises with supporting exercises.

If you familiar with how EasyFlexibility system was created, you would know that the ZST’s (Zaichik Stretching Techniques) came first, later on we developed the supporting exercises. The combination of the ZST’s together with, let’s call them “range of motion” techniques, for the sake of answering the direct question that was asked, gave better results than just the Zaichik Stretching Techniques.

We also tested it the other way to see what happens if a person does just the range of motion techniques without the Zaichik Stretching Techniques.

There were results. People in that test group did get more flexible from various range of motion exercises that were selected specifically for each muscle group. But ZST’s combined with the range of motion exercises, outperformed just the range of motion exercises. So, in conclusion it was determined that ZST’s are not as effective without the supporting exercises. And the “range of motion” exercises are not as effective without the ZST’s.

So the answer to this question is this: If you want to improve your flexibility as fast as possible you would combine stretching exercises with supporting exercises. This applies to hamstrings and all other muscles as well.

How do I pick the right level for me?

In order to pick the right level you can do a simple test. Answer this question: can you reach your toes having legs straight either sitting or standing?

  1. If you are not at all close then the Beginner Level is for you.

2. If you can reach your toes, or are almost there, then
the Intermediate Level is for you.

3. If you can place palms flat on the floor, and can't really feel a strong stretch or you do but you can hold it comfortably for 30 seconds, then the Advanced Level is for you.

Hamstrings Double Stretch Program

Testing the flexibility of both hamstrings at the same time has been known as the standard bench mark of flexibility for generations. In yoga this position is practiced standing, sitting, laying down, etc. Here is a list of some of them.

The challenge here is obvious. Two legs have to be stretched at the same time, with all the muscles restricting the hip flexion, are now times two. Because of such a high resistance, trying to master double hamstrings stretch incorrectly, will force the more flexible part of the body to give, and unfortunately that is the lower back.

In other words, standard forced stretch method, bring a high level possibility of injured lower back.
