ok, where do i start…
for one i have a masters degree in exercise rehibilitation and strength and conditioning. ive spent 5 years studying antomy muscles and how they work - this is my job!
where do you get ur information from?? Do you ever look at scientific studies? i have several showing there is no hamstring activation, would you like me to send them to you? Not in a sarcastic manner but i can sent u many. Theres emg studies, studies usimg mri imiging as well showing no incresed bloodflow in your hamstrings.
i can myself squat 360lbs - when you think you can feel your “hamstrings” in the squat its actually your adductors, they are a very strong hip flexor and extensor and a very common mistake is assuming its teh hamstrings.
Show me some evidence in a proper study?? you won’t because tehre isn’t any!
How can you hav a multi joint muscle creating force over one joint not the other? muscles don’t have brains they contract or they don’t you can’t tell them to contract only over one joint!"
This is what somebody emailed me after I said somewhere that hamstrings are used in a squat. Is this correct? I know how the adductors work in a squat but i still feel that the hamstrings are activated as well during a powerlifting stance squat or a full depth squat
