Reverse Lunges

Reverse Lunges are great for strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles, Adductors Soleus, and dynamic stability strength of the Hamstrings after a hamstring muscle strain. Engage your inner core below the belly button, then lunge backwards with the knee barely touching the ground on the toes and straighten out the back leg while pushing off. Walk back to the start position and repeat the same side 15 times 3 sets on each side. Reverse Lunges are great for lower quadrant injuries from running, soccer, ultimate frisbee and all sports involving running.

Bridging Hamcurls

So this exercise to strengthen your functional core along with your hamstrings. You’re going to lie on a mat with your feet on a ball, and a theraband wrapped around your knees and you’re going to lift up your bum with your core engaged, dig your heels into the ball and do a ham curl. Hold it for three seconds and then straighten it back out. Repeat that ten times, do three sets and enjoy!
