Hammies!

Ever try to strengthen your hamstrings without weights? Here is a good exercise for hamstrings. Not only does it really challenge your hamstrings, but it works your glutes and core at the same time. Now, that’s my kind of exercise!

Ok, so for starters, get a 55 centimeter physio-ball and lie down on the floor with it. Put your heels and ankles on the ball and lift up into a bridge from shoulders to feet. Remember, the ball’s job is to throw you down on the floor. Don’t let it! Be ready! Once you get your balance, begin bending your knees and pulling the ball toward you.

Try to push your hips up as high as you can while pulling your feet and the ball in as far as you can. Then slowly return to the start position, but don’t go all the way down to the floor.

Start with a couple of reps if it’s very difficult. Keep practicing until you can do it for at least 15 reps, at least 2 sets.

Fun, huh?

Now, you must stretch your hamstrings every day. If you don’t have a trainer to do it for you, go to the bottom of the page and click on the link to the Stretch out Strap and buy one. You will thank me for it. It is an indispensable tool for stretching. And it’s cheap too.
