In today’s new video on our YouTube channel (check out more of our videos here), I demonstrate a couple of my favourite techniques using the foam roller on your hamstring muscles.
The hamstrings muscle group is formed by three major muscles: semitendinosus, semimembranosus and biceps femoris. With little variations in our positioning on the foam roller, we can target each one!
The foam rolling routine featured in today’s video is great for runners, and athletes in general, who suffer from tight hamstrings, which can be a contributing factor to knee pain amongst other issues.
Traditionally it is relatively difficult to effectively work on the hamstrings with a foam roller, but the last two of the techniques I demonstrate above both help to achieve the better results!
Try the routine in the video and let me know how you get on in the comments below 🙂Last updated on March 2nd, 2021.
