Hamstrings are one of the big links in our bodies, they are big powerful muscles that cross the knee joint as well as the hip. This means that it can directly effect ankle, knee, hip, low back and more. Stretching is never a bad idea, but there are more efficient ways to get the Hamstrings to loosen up. Loading is key to improve long term muscle extensibility while using them functionally.
Do these exercises to help improve your mechanics and take the stress off your ankle, knee, hip, low back with improved motion and efficiency.
Consistency is important to change movement patterns. It will take 4-6 weeks to create true strength/length gain but after starting these exercises you will notice improvements because the muscle will become more active through our movement pattens functionally.
