Bad Hammy? Check this

Had another happy moment last week

 

They seem to be coming pretty often at the moment which is awesome

 

A friend contacted me because she has been having massive hamstring injury issues and had been unable to do any training on it despite have a lot of physio treatment

 

This seemed pretty odd to me as she is an ex gymnast and PT, so she has excellent athletic ability, and ridiculous mobility

 

So I struggled to see how her Hammy could be troubling her so much

 

One of the key things she said to me was that she rested for 6 weeks and its still there

 

Now here is a big clue

 

If you rest what you think is a muscle injury for a long time and it doesn’t get better then that’s probably not the issue big fella

 

Before seeing her I gave her a couple of isometric drills to work on and see if they helped

 

These weren’t isolation drills for the hammy but made it work as part of an overall chain

 

When she came in she said that they had helped and she had started to back into some light strength work

 

What I went to first up was to check her range and how her trunk was working to help movement

 

She had great range, but her trunk was asleep

 

It didn’t want to know

 

As soon as we loaded it up guess what?

 

The pain in the hamstring went

 

Her whole issue was her trunk was not working to help everything else move, and her hammy was taking a battering

 

Luckily because of her fitness and athleticism it was able to cope to a degree until it simple had enough

 

This was the message she put on her Instagram a couple days later after id set her a new routine

 

====================================================================

 

Today is a very good day.

 

Today I finally felt like my hamstring was in a fit state to get back to business and actually lift some heavy sh*t 🍑💪🏼

 

Considering my whole business started because I loved training my peach so much & having had to take 6-8weeks off training it properly made me very 😔, but today I worked on my Trunk as advised by @cricketstrength & then my Glutes & it was like all my Christmas’s came at once! 🍑🙏🏽😁
