Hamstring Strain Injuries – Superman Deadlifts

Begin by bending the knees a little. Keeping your spine in neutral and your inner core engaged, reach both arms forward and extend the left leg back leading with your heel.

Kick your left heel back and keep that pelvis level with the other side and straighten out the right knee with the corresponding foot on the ground. Then return to the start position.

Repeat this for 10 repetitions, doing 3 sets on both sides. This is a closed chain eccentric strengthening exercise for the right hamstring muscle.

If you’re unsure about the exercise or have uncertainty about where you’re at with your recovery book an appointment and have one of our Physiotherapists at either our North Burnaby or Vancouver locations to check things out.
