Hamstring Tendinopathies Exercise progression part 2 of 4
As mentioned in our previous post, hamstring injuries respond well to eccentric, or negative type of exercises. This specific exercise is great for the hamstring, but also is a good challenge for your core. The hamstrings as a postural muscle work closely together with your core, so exercises that target both are not only very effective, but also very functional.
Start by lying on your back and placing your feet on sliders. Engage your core and lift your hips off the ground. Now maintain that bridge position while you slowly slide both your feet away from you. This is much harder than it looks, so start easy. Remember we want to gradually progress with loading.
