Tip: Prevent Pulled Hamstrings

Prevent pulled hamstrings and strengthen your tendons and ligaments with this exercise.

Build up your tendons and ligaments with high-volume band work. This will not only strengthen ligaments and tendons (to keep you from pulling a hammy), but they're also great for active recovery.

  1. Wrap a light band around a solid object and take a seat on a plyo box. You'll want to use a box that allows you to get full range of motion (not a solid wooden box for example.)
  2. Do these quickly and go for reps.
  3. Do 100 to 200 reps two or three times per week.
