Hamstrings Workout

 

Dumbbell lateral lunge and touch

This move targets the often forgotten inner-thigh muscles.
Ignoring them can lead to muscular imbalances and injury, while strengthening them will improve all lower-body lifts and sports performance.

How to do it

  • ¬†Stand tall with your feet close together, holding a dumbbell in each hand.
  • Keeping your core braced and head looking forward, take a big step to one side and lower your body towards the leading leg, with your knee in line with your toes.
  • Reach down with the dumbbells, keeping your back straight, and touch them to the floor, or as far as you can comfortably reach.
  • Push back off the leading leg and repeat on the other side.

Jump lunge

The explosive power required to jump high enough to switch legs and land in another lunge leads to rapid muscle growth and has huge transferable value to many sports.

How to do it

  • Start in a lunge position, then jump straight up.
  • Switch legs in mid-air to land with your other foot forward.
  • Descend straight into a lunge and repeat.
