Passing the knee in and out the elbow
In sitting, and in lying supine on your back, you hold your feet, extend and bend your knees, and pass your knees inside and outside of your elbows.
This lesson helps to gain more length in the hamstrings, and to explore how the movements of the knee and pelvis relate to the torso, all in relation to the hamstrings. The term „hamstrings” is derived from the words „ham” and „strings”, from the Old English ham (or hom) meaning the hollow or bend of the knee, from a Germanic base where it meant "crooked". String refers to tendons, and thus, the hamstrings are the string-like tendons felt on either side of the back of the knee.
