Getting Into Position
Lie down on your back. Grab the outside of one foot with the arm from the opposite side of your body.
Begin in position one and activate the outer backside of your thighs by naturally resisting and generating tension while moving into position two.
Start with your leg bent, with your heel near your glutes. Continuously contract your hamstrings by kicking your heel down toward your glutes as you overcome this force with your other arm, pulling your heel up and across your body to elongate your lateral hamstrings.
Continue to activate the outer backside of your thighs while remaining in position two.
Begin in position two and activate the outer backside of your thighs by contracting the target muscles as you move into position one.
Start with your leg in an extended position. Kick your heel down toward your glutes as you use your hand to slow down this movement to strength train your lateral hamstrings.
Continue to activate the outer backside of your thighs while remaining in position one.
