Yeah, it doesn’t neccessarily say anything about the hams being the primary hip extensors though. Guess I just pulled that out of my ass… Lesson as always, I’m an idiot.
HaHa I think your being a bit too hard on yourself!
In all seriousness though, as someone who has suffered from a fair share of hamstring injuries, probably as a result of, among other things, using them as my main hip extensor, I thought it important that people dont neglect glute training/activation work.
To the OP, and this is just a personal point, I feel that having full mobility at the ankle/hip, and being able to absorb force thru the posterior chain is key to being able to not only declerate, but to quickly “turn it on” again in a change of direction, for example.
It’s kind of like jumping and landing. A “soft” ladning lends itself to more force being absrobed thru the posterior chain, whereas a
“loud” one may result from jabbing the foot and force going thru the quads.
