Hamstring Pawback

  • HOW: Start by standing straight up. Bring one knee up high towards your chest, then slowly begin to straighten out your knee as you lower your leg back down. As your toe gets closer to the ground strike the ground and slide your foot back to mimic the running motion. Use your arms just like if you were running. Opposite arm goes up when the leg goes up. Hold onto a surface to begin with at first until you feel comfortable doing this without holding on. 
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your hip and your hamstrings working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your core engaged during the process. Don’t slouch your back forward. Keep the knee facing forward throughout the process, don’t rotate your hip out as you repeat the stride.
