Strong hamstrings are critical if you want to run fast, jump high, and be agile. Also, strong hamstrings reduce the risk of strains, tears, and injuries —both common among athletes and fitness fanatics. Whether you are recovering from an injury or just want to be more bulletproof, doing hamstring exercises consistently will help you realize all of your athletic ambitions. Don’t have access to a gym but want to get some hamstring exercises in at home? Press play on this no equipment hamstring strength routine.
The hamstring is a group of three muscles that extends across the back of the thigh and moves the leg forward and backward. It’s important for everyday movement like walking, but also key for athletes whose sports require sprinting, like soccer, football, basketball or track and field. Its also an important muscle group to strengthen to help with knee pain, foot pain, and a variety of overuse injuries. Long story short: the hamstrings are ESSENTIAL in you feeling and moving your best. I created this hamstring strength routine to help you keep your hamstrings happy!
Reminder: if you are new to hamstring exercises, this video might be hard for you! Take breaks when you need to.

If you use this video routine consistently you WILL get stronger and one day this video will be a BREEZE for you ( #goals ).
As always, check with your doctor or physical therapist before starting this or any exercise routine. This video does not replace medical advice. Honor your body and move mindfully.
