Hey, it's me again... talking about beefing up you posterior chain. This is a subject that I am going to push over and over and over again. Building a strong back, glutes, and hamstrings will prevent injuries, make us more powerful, improve our posture, and not to mention, enhancing our aesthetics!
Today's exercise is a slight variation of the Slider Hamstring Curl article/ video that I posted last week!
The alternating slider hamstring curl is great for 3 reasons:
It is easier than the regular slider hamstring curls
A great way to add variety to your training
Great for travel/ home workouts (or in the gym to mix it up, most gyms have sliders)
If you're looking for a more entry level exercise, this one is great! On the other hand, you might be thinking you're too advanced for a "basic" exercises. Bologna. If this exercise is fairly easy for you, go higher volume to build muscular endurance.
Try 3 sets of 40-60 seconds. Bridge the hips as high as possible and each time you curl your heel towards your glutes, flex that hamstring and workout on your mind/ muscle connection!
Video below and let me know if you give this one a try!
