Hamstring

Updated: Nov 25, 2020


Tight hamstrings are one of the most common things I see. This is because the hamstrings play a large role of stabilising the pelvis and can be over worked and tighten up if you have weak quads, hip flexors and core muscles. So I would advise you to stretch the hamstrings and combine this with our leg hover, hip flexor, pancake and core activation routines. Also strengthen the hamstrings in end range may be a good idea and this exercise demonstration is linked below along with the stretches.
