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)
- 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).
- Place your hands behind your lower back, and begin with your body perpendicular to the ceiling (still on your knees).
- 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.
- Perform a full 12 reps, remove the weight from your feet and rest 60 seconds, then repeat 2 more full sets.
