Arg Hamstrings

    Arg!! Hamstrings!!!

    I HATE my hamstrings with a passion >=(. They are extremely tight, to the point that doing a simple stretch by sitting on the floor with my feet out in front of me is impossible because my hamstrings prevent me from sitting up on my sitbones (and I end up rolling back).

    At this point I am absolutely desperate and contemplating trying to stretch on vicodin or something, so I can at least tolerate the pain long enough to get some sort of stretch.... has anyone else found a way to deal with tight hamstrings????

    I suggest that you see a doctor to get an evaluation.

    I agree with Evo. Just talk with your doc about it. Stretching and pain are not supposed to go together.
