 The muscles along the back of the thigh are chronically tight in many climbers, thus restricting stem and high-step movements. Daily use of this stretch will yield significant improvement.
 1. Lie flat on your back with one leg straight and the other bent slightly.
 2. Lift the straight leg upward, grab it behind the thigh or calf, and pull gently forward until you feel the stretch down the back of your leg.
 3. Hold this stretch for ten seconds, then release it slightly for a few seconds.
 4. Pull the leg once again for another twenty- to thirty-second stretch. Be sure to maintain a straight leg all the while.
5. Repeat with your other leg.
 6. Alternatively, loop a fitness band over your foot and regulate the stretch by pulling on the band.
