Evaluate, Reset, and Stabilize Hamstrings

In this quick 7 min video, I go over how to Evaluate, Reset, and Stabilize Hamstring "tightness." Tightness is just a perception to change this rapidly, go through this sequence.

  • Eval - if ASLR is painful/limited AND PSLR is significantly improved in range - you'll notice that the perception of stretch or discomfort comes on later in the range, even if it's just as intense
  • Reset - alternating manual hip flexion and extension resistance through the range, may use EDGE Mobility Band to further improve comfort and motor control, emphasize isometric hip flexion after several reps
  • Stabilize - start with core activated ballistic ASLR and progress to kettlebell or dumbbell deadlifts to "lengthen and strengthen"
