 Fitness professional, Caroline Jordan leads you through the most effective exercises to build strong, lean, powerful hamstring muscles. This workout is 8 minutes long and doesn’t require any equipment. It can be done at home, at the gym, or while traveling and is part of a well rounded strength training program. This video is all levels and can be modified or intensified depending on your exercise needs. Strong hamstrings are an important piece of having a healthy, powerful body and performing well in the sports you love. Strong hamstring muscles can protect the knees from injury. The hamstring muscles absorb stress placed on the knee from running, walking and other activities. Weakened hamstrings can lead to knee instability and injury risk. Strong hamstrings protect runners from injury and help with speed. Flexing the hip, swinging the leg back and striking it on the ground consistently engages the hamstrings. Strength helps with acceleration, deceleration and injury prevention.

Exercises for strong hamstrings include lunges, backward knee flexes with light weights and leg curls. Backbends, bridge and chair poses used in yoga strengthen the hamstrings, but should be guided by a certified yoga practitioner to avoid injury. Practicing high kicks can keep the hamstring flexible and strong. Swimming and cycling are effectively gentle exercises that can be performed by otherwise healthy individuals and not just athletes.

As always, please check with a doctor before starting any exercise program. Honor your body and it’s injuries and be SMART when exercising. Repeat this circuit 2-3 times through for a longer workout. Leave me a comment below when you have completed the circuit and let me know how it went!! ENJOY!! xox caroline

  10. Definitely this is my tomorrow exercise. 👍👍

  11. mujin70 says:

    Fantastic moves, some I have not seen before (slight variation work great). Loved how you showed us from the side on the single leg move, but please do the same in the future for other moves, like the lunges and the bridges. I'm thinking, for example, about what degree angle should we be forming with the bridges and also you seem to be bending your rear leg on the lunges while others insist on straight leg. It would be great to hear your insights on why you chose the bent leg. Thanks for a great set of exercises.

  12. Very good, I was looking for something to target hamstrings !! Thanks!

  13. The part where you make your knees kiss is THEE worst. Lol it burns SO badly. But it works. 😁 Keep going. You got this. ❤️

  14. Mel Chacon says:

  40. Darren Lewis says:

    Great video. I intend to share with my fiance

  41. caroline, you are adorable and good at demonstrating the exercises, but I have one concern and that is your not wearing proper sneakers to help with balance and prevent injury!!  Sneakers are a must when trying to achieve proper form and balance.  its not a complaint just an observation:)
