Sidestep a Hamstring Pull

Contrary to popular belief, straining your hamstrings isn't necessarily a sign that you should have been stretching more. As athletic trainer Scott Kneller explains in this video, loosening up your hip flexors and strengthening your butt muscles can help protect your hamstrings from injury. They'll be less likely to overcompensate for weak glutes—and therfore, less likely to suffer a strain—by adding two moves to your Movement Prep routine. Kneller explains how to do them to help you avoid this painful injury.
