20 Hamstring Exercises You Can Do At Home

Screen Shot 2020-03-26 at 2.20.23 AM copyIf you are like me and stuck working out at home while you are in quarantine during this COVID-19 crisis, you are looking for new workouts and exercises.

One body part I think gets left behind (pun intended) is the back of your thighs (hamstrings).

If I had to guess, I bet your list of hamstring exercises is pretty short. Most people rely on machines like prone and seated leg curl machines to target their hamstrings. You aren’t alone. The hamstrings are a little hard to work without big fancy gym equipment.

So, what can you do when you don’t have access to your gym’s awesome machines? Plenty!
