A lot of people blame tight hamstrings for lower back pain.

While plenty of people have tight hammies, it’s really unlikely that a “pain generator,” is the hamstrings.

There are a multitude of reasons one could experience pain and it’s very appealing for us to always have a reason for having pain. Sometimes things just hurt.

Now, if you consistently feel like your hamstrings are tight, here is a little exercise, an RDL, that can help improve the tightness that you might be feeling.

In the video I said “improve length,” but likely what’s happening is decreasing our sensitivity to the stretch, allowing us to bend farther forward.
