What is these hamstrings? Here is what they are; hamstrings are the three muscles that are located at the back of your thigh. The motion of these muscles work contrary to each other.

Arguably, these are the most neglected muscles in the body. This you have to agree with me. Let us shift from the norm and make them our topic of discussion. If you are a body builder I would bet that the favorite part of your workout is not your legs. Right?

How they are done

Squats are done by first of all placing and locking in a bar underneath your traps. With your feet slightly outside your shoulder width, bend your knees bringing your legs almost parallel to the ground. Here, you might want to maintain your weight on your heels. This is a helpful tip especially for you.

Another important tip is that, you should inhale as you move down while your way up should be accompanied by breathing out. The head position should be in such a way that it is looking upwards the entire time.

Knowing the best ways to do workouts from even online tools will help you a lot. You could also try the hack squat machine. Who needs other workout when you have this for your quads and incidentally hamstrings too when they do squats? No one. Try them.
