The hamstring walk out is an excellent hamstring exercise that is particularly effective at creating a large stimulus with no external load.

Benefits of Hamstring Walk Outs

The main benefit is the strength gained in the hamstrings. This is an excellent exercise for athletes who need to build strong hamstrings for both performance and injury mitigation. It is also excellent to maintain strength in the hinge pattern and maintain muscle mass if you don’t have access to weights.

How To Do Hamstring Walk Outs

  1. Start in a hip thrust position with the feet pressing into the ground.
  2. Slowly step forward. Take small steps to ensure there is enough time under tension.
  3. Once you’ve moved your feet slightly further away from the hips transition to the heels, creating a lot of tension in the hamstrings.
  4. Do a slight pause when the legs are nearly straight and use the hamstring to hold a strong and stable position.
  5. Step slowly back to the start position, taking small steps.

Coaching Tips For Hamstring Walk Outs

Follow these cues to perform Hamstring Walk Outs correctly:

  • Use the heels
  • Only go as far as the hamstrings feel able
  • Move slowly and deliberately.
