Abstract: 
The necessity of identitying a method to bring about the best durable flexibility for the tissues in the shortest time is one of the most important rehabilitation and sportive issues.
The aim of this research was to study the flexibility of hamstring muscles (HMF) of dominant and non-dominant limb after a course of stretching exercise in consecutive and alternative repetitions, and comparing the two HMF measuring methods.
45 subjects were randomly divided into three groups (n=15). Groups 1 and 2 performed static stretching exercise with a frequency of 10 repetitions lasting 30 seconds interspersed with a 60 second rest intervals between each repetitions. The consecutive group performed the task six days a week and the alternative group performed the exercise every other day during the week. Hamstring muscle flexibility (HMF) of both limbs was measured using four methods of AKE, SRT, HJA, and SLR.
The results showed that, despite the slight difference between the HMF of the two experimental groups, there was no significant difference between HMF of the dominant and non-dominant limb. It was concluded that since the muscle elongates in the range of its elongation capacity, one-day pause in the course of exercise has the same effect on the HMF persistence irrespective of the method of muscle elongation.
