#hamstrings #rehab #recovery #thrive #love First several videos are showing different angles of the same leg kick-backs. Kickbacks work the hamstrings, the under-butt, the hips, the lower-abs, and the back. To start, I would make sure that my core is engaged, being mindful of the lowerback and using the hamstrings to pull the weight. This is a small-break-down of the common mat exercise The Bird-Dog. It works on stabilization, increasing the weight-bearing of the hamstrings, gets the hamstrings moving. To start pull through the heel, keeping the hips square as much as possible. Over-time increasing the whole body being square from all angles. If my glutes and hips are rotating up, I am using less of my hamstrings. I am unsure I believe in this whole reps and numbers. Yeah, there r studies that explain all the reps and timing and if it’s even proven. I listen to my body. If I can only do 5 of them, that is what I start with. Everyone starts somewhere, I use my back-Injury and the dysfunction to build the strength, by listening to the pain and what the muscle is telling me. I use the videos to look at how my body is actually moving, verses how I feel it moves, biofeedback, so I can be mindful of proper body mechanics. Slow and steady. Slow and steady. #slow and #steady. The last video is a great kick-back for the upper-butt...those glute muscles that sit on top...once again, making sure hips are square. Pull-the pelvic forward, tucking the tail-bone to protect the lowerback and engaging pelvic-floor. Being mindful of the lower-abs and if the hips are shifting back and forth. Starting with the lowest weight possible, Or even use bands. It’s a very small movement. When i start to curve the spine, I am actually extending the leg back to far, and I am mindful of this on the next-reps. Feeling it in the upper butt, as well, as the hamstrings. Attempting to do one set of 20. However what is really important is just starting. So if only able do 5, doing 5 and slowly and steadily increase adding an additional rep and additional sets, listening to the bodies intelligence.
