The hamstrings are a group of muscles at the rear of the upper leg.
They flex the knee joint, adduct the leg and extend the thigh to the backside of the body.
They’re made up of a long head and a short head.
The long head attaches to the back of the lower hip bone, while the shorthead attaches to the femur.
Unfortunately the hamstrings are often overlooked because training them is somehow tedious and often feels unnatural.
But training only your quads and not your hamstrings increases your risk of injury, which is why they should get some attention in your workout.
The best way to achieve this is through heavy deadlifts and or Romanian deadlifts.
Both exercises require a lot of training to be mastered.
So make sure you get used to them before hitting the big weights.
If you need to isolate the hamstrings for whatever reason.
The best exercise would be leg curls.
But like I said before most people hate them because they feel really awkward.
That’s why I would stick to deadlifts if that’s the case for you.
