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

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.
