7 Essential Hamstring Exercises for Athletes

Nordic Ham Curl

This one is a killer.
Be careful as this is not a Beginner exercise.

  • Setup with your hips extended and torso upright. Your feet have to be stable by either weight or a Training partner.
  • Keep your hips extended, begin to lower yourself as slowly as possible until you can no longer control the descent.
  • At this point, allow yourself to fall to the floor in a controlled fashion and “catch” yourself with your arms.
  • Give yourself just enough of a push off the floor to get back into a position where you can pull yourself back to the start using your hamstrings.
