London bridges falling down

In honor of actually being in London, UK today, let’s try this little hamstring move to get your walking legs in shape!

Muscles worked: Hamstrings
Time to complete: 8-10 minutes
You will need: Padded weight bench and a heavy dumbbell weight (about 1/3 of your body weight)

  1. Sit on your knees on the bench, and place the bar of the dumbbell in between your feet (one plate on the bench and the other facing up).
  2. Place your hands behind your lower back, and begin with your body perpendicular to the ceiling (still on your knees).
  3. Slowly descend your chest toward the bench, keeping shoulders back, until the weight feels as if it’s coming up, then slowly return to the starting position.
  4. Perform a full 12 reps, remove the weight from your feet and rest 60 seconds, then repeat 2 more full sets.
