At this point in the Corona game, who doesn’t have tight and/or weak hamstrings? Show me that person and I will show you a pot of gold. All jokes aside, the hamstring muscle group is a very common problem area for a lot of people. The good news is that we are going to get your hamstrings moving and feeling better than ever in today’s routine.
Equipment needed: 1. Foam Roller. 2. Padded Mat. Today we are working on the tight muscles and fascia located on the entire back of your leg aka your posterior chain. We are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your hips and ankles.
We are starting off with a muscle / fascia release for your hamstring muscles. Anatomy tip: did you know you have 3 hamstring muscles? Next we are working on a full range of motion activation movement for your hamstrings and knee. Focus on squeezing your quad muscles as much as possible while you stretch out your hamstrings. Third up is a hamstring end-range stretch isometric technique. Focus on stretching out your hamstring as far as possible and then activating and contracting them. We are finishing up with end-range stretch isometrics for your ankle, specifically ankle dorsiflexion. I want you to try extra hard to focus on these muscles while you activate them.
Do you have any questions about this routine or other routines? We can check out how you are performing specific movements if you post a video of the movement on facebook, or instagram and tag us in it @movementvault. We’ll comment with feedback and some ❤️. Get it guys!
