How to strengthen hamstrings

Increasing hamstring strength is highly desirable if you run or play sport.

In addition to enhancing running speed and jumping height, strong hamstrings play a crucial role in stabilising the knee joint and safeguarding the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) against potential injuries.

Most hamstring training machines are big, bulky and expensive.

Here are 4 ways you can strengthen your hamstrings with minimal equipment:

  • Glute Bridge - single leg for added difficulty.
  • Hamstring Curl - using the ISOTIB-LT this is super easy and effective. 
  • Nordic Curl - using the Nordic Bar and any rack, rig or upright post.
  • Single Leg Landmine RDL - using the Universal Landmine Clamp and a rack, cage or post.
