Hamstring Walk Outs

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.

Single Arm Ring Plank

Complete 20 seconds

The single arm OH KB Hold is an excellent core strength and shoulder stability exercise. Very similar to the single arm OH KB carry that is more traditionally used, but is more appropriate for those who find this positioning very difficult or have limited space.

Benefits of Single Arm Ring Plank

There are two major benefits to the single arm OH KB hold, primary the benefits are to the core musculature. As we are using a weight on one side of the body, the weight pulls the body to rotate, meaning we will be resisting rotation throughout the hold. This exercise is also a great way to improve the stability and strength of the shoulder joint. It requires you to resist a lot of fatigue and generate a lot of stability in the joint to maintain the position. Finally this exercise can be a great way to more on shoulder mobility. Those who struggle to put weight over their head and keep the exercise technically clean can use this exercise to great effect.

How To Do Single Arm Ring Plank

  1. Start with the kettlebell in the front rack position and press the weight overhead so that the elbow is locked and the arm is completely straight.
  2. Hold as still as possible, keeping a tight core and shoulder joint.

Coaching Tips For Single Arm Ring Plank

Follow these cues to perform Single Arm Ring Plank correctly:

  • Create tension in both rings first and then release one to find the position safely
  • Keep hips and shoulders inline
  • Lock the elbow and do not allow it to bend.
