I asked my physiotherapist to check for hamstring weakness. She did notice a slight weakness but she noticed that the glutes are even weaker and thats the bigger issue. She said I should focus on strengthening glutes rather than hamstrings because most of the glute exercises will also strengthen hamstrings anyways and she said I dont want to be hamstring dominant.
