Assisted Nordic Hamstring Exercise

December 12, 2018

 

When added to injury prevention programs, the traditional Nordic hamstring exercise has been shown to decrease hamstring strains by 50% - when compared against injury prevention programs that didn't include them (Al Attar et al, 2017). 


Anecdotally, however I find that some people struggle to do them which creates a barrier to its implementation.

So for those that struggle to do the traditional Nordic hamstring exercise, here is a band-assisted Nordic that allows you to lower to greater hamstring lengths, but also assists you on the way up so you can sneak in a shortening contraction too. 

 


The reasoning behind the band-assisted option is that it allows you to build capacity in the hamstrings over a few weeks to eventually move onto the traditional exercise, thus increasing exercise compliance and decressing injury risk in the long term.
