Target the back of your legs and your core …
Performing this Hamstring Pull with a stability ball allows you to really isolate your hamstring muscles, target your glutes and work your abdominals and core. Form is key, remember to keep your upper body relaxed and squeeze your abdominals and glutes at the top of the move. Aim for 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps in your next workout.
Do it Right:
- Lie on back w/ heels on an exercise bench feet hips distance apart, knees and hips bent to 90 degrees
- Contract abdominals and lift hips off the mat so knees, hips & shoulders are in a straight line, squeeze glutes and hold for a second, lift right heel up, keeping right knee in line w/ right hip pull knee in toward your shoulder as far as possible, return leg to starting position and repeat on other side.
- Lower hips back down to the floor to complete 1 rep.
