Let’s talk about hamstring care! Our hamstrings are commonly injured in activities or sports that require high-speed running, aggressive change of direction, or in over-stretched situations. It is important to prevent these injuries by stretching and strengthening this large muscle group.
Below is a hands-on, manual approach to help stretch the hamstrings using our active release technique. This is commonly described as a “hurts so good” or “deep, intense stretch” by our patients.
The next two videos show a glute bridge progression on a swiss ball, a great exercise to activate and strengthen the hamstrings. You can try it single leg, or more advanced, double leg. The swiss ball adds proprioception work which challenges you to use your core and other muscles in order to successfully complete.
The last video shows a single leg RDL with a kettlebell weight. This is an excellent exercise to activate glutes and hamstrings, as well as adding a balance component!
