You can find some very useful information about the hamstring muscles here.
Technique – Start by laying down on the floor in an area that will provide enough space to perform the exercise. Raise one leg upwards towards your chest allowing your knee to bend slightly. Keep your other leg flat to the floor. Place your hands behind your knee and start the stretching exercise when ready. Pull your knee into your chest until you feel your hamstring muscle stretch. Hold this position for a count of 5. Release your grip to relieve pressure on the hamstring muscles. Repeat this technique with the other leg until your hamstring muscles are full stretched.
