I constantly hear, “If my hamstrings are tight, I should not work them out, right?”
My response is, "No. You should work them out! Especially because they’re tight. You have to stretch them, and then you have to strengthen them, because they are so tight that they’re weak. Some are tight on the inside or more towards the adductors in the thigh (semi tendinosus and semimembranosus) and weak in the back (bicep femoras), so we have to work on getting that leg muscle balanced so the mind-to-muscles communication can work properly. It is really important to do those hamstring curls either on a machine or a ball or a slider- whatever you have!
