A Hamstring Workout For The 3 Musketeers

A great hamstring workout will serve you well in respect to becoming balanced with your physique; there are a lot of people out there who forget about training their backside. One of the biggest points of training is that we want to obtain the whole body package; we don’t want just bits and pieces of the package.

Whatever you may call your hamstrings… hammies, or hams, we know that the three musketeers need some attention just like the rest of your muscle groupings. So… what are you waiting for, let’s show them some love.

The Quest For Amazing, Strong And Balanced Hamstrings

There are three muscles that are responsible in the composition of the hamstring muscle group, these muscles are located along the back of your leg, and they are between your glute (butt) and where your knee bends.

The three individual muscles that make up the hamstrings are the semitendinosus, semimembranosus, and the biceps femoris.

The hamstrings work in harmony with two joints, your hip joint and your knee joint. The hamstring muscle group is responsible for flexing (bending) the leg at the knee, hip extension, jumping, sprinting, and running.

In the quest for improving our hamstrings size so they are balanced with our quads; it’s important to always be consistent with our training, when we do our hamstring exercises always make sure our form is spot on perfect.

Never forget about our backside, when we remember these things we will have some amazing hamstrings that will be in balance with our quads.
