The hamstring muscles run along the posterior or backside of the thigh and are responsible for extending the hip and flexing the knee. Injury of these muscles is often referred to as a ‘pulled hamstring’ and is commonly observed in sports that involve sprinting, such as track, basketball, football and soccer.
While temporary rest may be important initially, recovery from this type of injury requires the implementation of resistance training type exercises that specifically target the hamstrings. These exercises are extremely important as they work to improve integrity of the hamstrings, which means the likelihood of suffering another injury reduces greatly.
If you have suffered a recent hamstring strain, the exercises shown in this program will help improve muscle strength and integrity, reduce pain and enhance overall function.
