Static stretching is holding a stretch pose for longer than 15 seconds. Stretching like this allows the muscles to lengthen and increase flexibility. Do this after exercise.
Fitness Trainer Marzia Prince demonstrates a static stretch that targets the glutes and hamstrings. Lay on your back, knees bent. Cross your ankle across the other knee, grab the leg, and pull for around 30 seconds. Relax then perform the stretch again. After doing this twice on the same leg, alternate and do it two more times.
