HAMSTRINGS

by Sep 30, 2021Fitness0 comments

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.

Calf Muscles Explained

The calf muscle on the back of the lower leg is actually made up of two muscles.
First the gastrocnemius which is the larger calf muscle.
It forms the bulge visible beneath the skin.

Muscle Hypertrophy Explained

Muscle growth is a fascinating subject and chances are you want some yourself.

You probably know that to get your body to build new muscle tissue a few things need to happen.

Most importantly you need to create a stimulus for example through weight training and you also need to provide your body with the right building blocks to create new tissue like calories and enough protein.

But what exactly happens in your body when you have these things covered.

We know from studies that skeletal muscle tissue is the most adaptable tissue in the human body.

And even though we still haven’t figured out every last aspect of muscle growth it is a well researched topic that can help you improve your fitness routine.

So to help you understand the whole process we have to start with the basics.

Your muscles don’t actually grow during the workout.

Biceps Explained

The biceps with its full name being biceps brachii is called that way because it has two heads.
Both heads of the muscle arise on the scapula and join to form a single muscle belly which is attached to the upper forearm.
As you probably already know the biceps acts to flex the elbow and pretty much every guy wants bigger biceps.
