Forums General Hamstring mobility Re: Hamstring mobility

Judging from some of your post history (well, the ones I commented on before anyway), I would guess it’s because you’re much more in-tune with your quads and low back than you are your hamstrings. It’s really a symptom of being human in the end. We live on the front of our bodies, and the back side sometimes gets forgotten a little bit.

I used to think my hamstrings were awesome. I’ve always had pretty good mobility back there from my martial arts background, but after getting into the soft-tissue side of mobility it became really clear how messed-up, stiff, and sensitive they actually are.
Just giving them more focus in training and recovery has reconnected me mentally to my hamstrings. Even getting a lacrosse ball in there will help you build more proprioception and learn to feel them.
