Hamstring exercises for injury prone15484

Hamer93 private msg quote post Address this user
I've decided to get rid of the machines from my leg day as my hamstring is incredibly injury prone and it's not functional to do knee extension and flexion machines.

I've switched my lower body day to:

Back squats
Front squats
Box jumps
Sumo deads
Glute ham raises
*lunges*??
Calf hypertrophy work

Lunges are a maybe not sure if it's just more unneeded quad dominant exercises but I feel as though I need another exercise to level the work load up, what does everyone think?

I think you're still quad dominant, even without the lunges. I'd consider doubling up the volume on your GHRs. -3X

Are SLDL or RDL acceptable to work around your injuries?

Yeah I know it's over dominant that's why I was considering them and wanted more ham work. What about the raises where your ankles and locked and you drop forward?

SLDL and Romanians cause a lot of aggro

You're talking about the slow (like 10 second) eccentric lowering of a GHR right? Those are great- we use them in the last stages of hamstring tear rehab. -3X

@Hamer93 Anyone else get the irony of @Hamer having a bad Hamer ??

Dude honestly for me.. putting more load through complex exercises works the hamstring more. If i wanted to build it up and isolate somewhat i'd be doing AND DO use seateds ham curls.... literally nothing targets them better and start at a light weight.

Alot of those other exercises are kinda AVOIDING the problematic area why do that when their clearly a weak point for u.

Frowned upon by all the strength and conditioning lecturers and coaches I've spoke to

Not sure, not very functional I guess? Although that's only for sports and oly lifting

Just started doing seated ham curls for the first time, I absolutely love them. I'm assuming they aren't touted by those coaches because they're mostly a "bodybuilding" exercise?

Those coaches are not consistent with what the current accepted practice is among medical rehab protocol, for both injury recovery, general deconditioning, or strength protocols. -3X
