Hamstring

Quads may get most of the attention from athletes, but hamstrings are equally important to develop lower-body power. If you want to Squat more? Train your hamstrings. Want to run faster? Hamstrings. Same goes for changing directions, building more overall strength and improving your balance. Don't just focus on one side of the body. Train your hamstrings with workouts from STACK experts.
