Get Your Sexy Back – Hamstrings Edition

Hello friends!

I hope you’ve been following our “Get Your Sexy Back” fitness series and working on all of those back side muscles with us! So far we have covered glutes and triceps. Today we are covering hamstrings. I wanted to showcase my favorite hamstring move, which is one we do in barre class and I see the fastest results from.

Pointers to keep in mind:

  • Keep your tailbone close to the wall (6 inches is good).
  • Have a sturdy surface prop the stabilizing foot on ..unless you own your own barre;)
  • Keep your pelvis tucked in to your belly button.
  • Lift the leg straight up, keeping the angle as parallel to the wall as possible.

Watch our demo video with barre instructor Jen Donahue, and do these at home! You will feel the burn!

Stay tuned for the next post from this serious, covering shoulders and back!
