This exercise is a mainstay of joint-friendly training. It's a hip lift that involves more hamstring activity than the hip thrust due to the fact that 1) the foot is elevated above the torso and 2) the knee is only bent to roughly 15 degrees.
Think you're ready to sprint? Don't be so sure. Toughen up your hamstrings first. Here's how.

Since I've started writing for the T-Nation, I've gotten 100's of e-mails asking me varying questions about the rotator cuff and its many somewhat magical qualities. While it may not be as cool as big quads or a great set of guns, a well-developed rotator cuff is sexy in its own, injury-free kind of way.
