A challenge I set myself earlier this year was to work on training and developing my hamstrings (backs of my thighs) more – both for aesthetic purposes (yes I want that below bum curve to show through in my gym leggings!) but also functional as like most females, I am extremely quad dominant which can result in knee pain and lazy glutes. So I wanted to try and build strength into the back of my leg, which means including targeted exercises such as this mid to low deadlift into my leg day routine. Here I am performing this exercise:
Some may see this move as slightly unorthodox, and it is definitely a move where your technique must be spot on (to avoid pressure in the lower back) but the isolation, and indeed burn into the hamstrings is worth it!
