I’ve noticed that there are plenty of sprinters on this board. What training methods have you used to prevent hamstring pulls?
One often hears that the cause of hamstring pulls is a high quadriceps to hamstrings strength ratio. How do you go about evaluating this ratio accurately in a practical training context? Is the ratio of your front squat to technically correct clean pull, for instance, a good indicator of this? Leg extension to leg curl?
I understand that there are many other causes of hamstring pull (poor mechanics, inadequate warm-up, simple overtraining, adhesions from previous injuries, etc.) but I am interested in the strength training side of this issue.
