Hamstrings:Week 11

We only have two more workouts on your hamstrings video series on Shattered! You’ll be repeating your week 3 workout today, but now you’ll be using heavier weights. You should notice impressive improvements since the last time you performed this workout.

 

NOTES:

*Consider including recovery activities such as foam rolling or massage. It’s crucial that you do all you can to allow your body to fully recover from these intense workouts.

* Don’t forget to start your day with fluid and fast-digesting protein such as Micropure® Whey Protein Isolate. During the night your body goes into catabolism (muscle breakdown), and getting in a high quality whey protein product helps stop this and jump-start anabolism (muscle growth).

* Increase your calorie intake before and after the training day for the body part you’re emphasizing in your Shattered! program. In this case, it’s hamstrings. Take a look at how you can add 200-500 quality calories to support recovery and growth to break through your plateau with this muscle group.
