Abstract: This study examined the order effect of a hamstring muscle stretch and resisted hamstring exercises on straight leg raise range of movement (SLR-ROM), in a group of twenty females aged 20-34 years. The stretch was applied either immediately before or Immediately after a resisted hamstring exercise. Exercise significantly decreased SLR-ROM (p < 0.05) and stretching significantly increased SLR-ROM (p < 0.05). The overall change in SLR-ROM for the two groups showed that a significant increase in SLR-ROM was detected (at a low force level) in Group 1 subjects who performed exercise and then stretched. A non-significant increase in SLR-ROM was detected by the higher force level in Group 1 subjects. In contrast, Group 2 subjects (stretch then exercise) showed a non-significant reduction in SLR-ROM at both levels of force.
