Prevent Hamstring Strains with Glute Bridges with Knees Bent
Hamstring strains don’t have to be a reoccurrence in someone’s life. Regular and diverse hamstring exercises are needed to have bulletproof hamstrings. Glute bridges with knees bent are pretty simple to perform. Now extend the levers of the human body and create more difficulty therefore a different training stimulus. Legs straight or slightly bent while performing the bridge movement will have a different requirement from the hip extensors. Drive the heels of your feet into the bench, while lifting your hips up leading to contracting you glutes at the top for maximal effectiveness. Use any sort of load where needed but focus on higher volume with this variation. Incorporating tempo work has a place too based off the purpose of the session. Make a plan based off the purpose and goal(s).
