Heavy weights = pow­er­ful glutes

EASE BACK INTO IT A re­cent study found that half of all re-in­juries to ham­strings oc­curred within 25 days of re­turn­ing to train­ing, which sug­gests ath­letes were not giv­ing them­selves enough time to re­cover com­pletely.

BE NEG­A­TIVE Moves that lengthen the mus­cle un­der ten­sion (neg­a­tive ex­er­cises) are great for ham­string strength. Try mod­i­fied Nordic Curls (kneel on the floor and lower your body to the floor while your lower legs are held in place).
