Hamstrings:Week 2

This week we’re targeting the hamstrings with glute-ham raises. This is a tricky move, and you should check out my video to see how it works. Along with lying leg curls, this is one of my favorites because I think it delivers the best results for hamstrings development.

 

NOTES:

* When you feel your hamstrings disengage at the top of the movement you should go directly into your next rep. Notice that I’m spotting myself while still trying to work my hamstrings as much as possible.

* Don’t forget that you can train another body part when you’re on this plateau-buster series for hamstrings. I recommend adding calves so long as you train hamstrings first.

* To keep yourself hydrated consume HYDRA-CHARGE® and make certain to get in at least a gallon of water on each of your training days.

COMMENT

Glute-ham raises

10 Sets / 10 Reps

Rest for 3 minutes between sets, and stretch out your hamstrings during this break.

 

TIP: The stretch between sets is crucial for creating the space for growth in your hamstrings while also helping to prevent injury. Many guys have tight hamstrings, and you should really focus on stretching these muscles of each leg for about 20-25 seconds between sets.
