STACK Expert Joel Smith expounds on the most effective strategies for preventing hamstring pulls.
Single leg hamstring pulls from the well. I'm on 1 red spring here and I do both parallel and turned out positions. When clients are ready, and have a great core connection, I add the challenge of moving the arm positions to challenge their balance. A nice way to spice things up!! It's all about the core❤️ @pilatesgoddessclothing
Lie faceup with your heels in the TRX's foot cradles, legs extended and arms straight out to sides in a "T," palms on floor. Lift hips so body is aligned from shoulders to heels. Bend knees, pulling handles toward you. Extend legs to starting position.
Prevent Injury Now, Avoid It Later - SO wish I would have read this sooner! Dealing with a hamstring pull which has left me off running for 3 months! Getting old sucks so warm-up & stretch! Competitor has great running info!

A major compound exercise! Target muscle: Gluteus Maximus and erector spinae. Synergists: Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Adductor Magnus, and Soleus. Numerous other muscles throughout the body act as stabilizers.
