Eccentric Hamstring Strengthening

Posted by Brendan Hill G.S.R on Monday, July 7, 2014
Hamstrings injuries make up a sizable percentage of what i see in the clinic. Eccentric exercises are always important in regards to strength and there are many exercises that hit the hamstrings in this way. Eccentric training is defined as active contraction of a muscle occurring simultaneously with lengthening of the muscle. Single Leg Romanian Dead Lifts (RDLs), Romanian Dead Lifts, using an exercise ball, using a resistance band and Nordic Curls are all excellent exercises depending on what level you are at in your training. 

Here are some links to each exercise so you know what is what. Any questions then feel free to contact me.
