Yes, people in general and especially women tend to be quad dominant. If they’re not staying on the balls of the feet the force is absorbed through the calf and even further up depending on how hard they’re landing. With regards to the hamstrings the number one exercise that will reduce if not eliminate hamstring and posterior chain injuries in general is the glute hamstring raise. I try to do 2×10 or 3×5 after every deadlift workout and it has eliminated lower back pain and hamstring issues. Oh and powerful glutes are good for sprinting or so I’ve heard.
