What do you feel gives you the best results for your hamstrings?
Deadlift. GHR. Squats.
GHR, lying leg curl, olympic back squat w/ pause at bottom
SLDLs with a very long strentch and slow negative, GHRs and weighted back extensions
I don't have a lying leg curl, but the seated one does nothing but bother my hips
GHR,SLDL's, leg curls. yeah i said. especially lying ones.
Lying and standing leg curls work best for me.
Doggystyle leg curls
Seated leg curls
I like cable pullthroughs more than rdls because you can get a wicked stretch at the bottom by looking through your legs
Number 1: Stiff Leg deadlift
SLDL, lying leg curls, RDL.
what has yet to be mentioned? kb swings, sprinting
I personally like forward tire drags, glute ham raise and deadlifts.
sldl with dbs
The best movement nobody does is Single Leg Back Extensions (on a glute-ham, not one of those 45 degree thingys). I think single leg isolates the hamstrings better than regular Back Extensions. For me, pilling on a lot of weight on BEs hurts my piriformis so Sl is much better for me.
I find if I do low weight for high reps I feel it more in the glute. When I hit it in the 5-10 rep range hamstrings are the limiting factor.
look up John Meadows ham killers, next to SLDL it rapes your hams.
How exactly do you perform forward tire drags?
tie a rope through a tire
Ho,d rope in hands
Walk with big strides
I do forward drags with my prowler
Hmm, I would think of that is a tire pull...I was imagining a tire drag as walking backwards or something.
Not sure what to think or say Hungry...
