All Christina is going to do hereis squeeze her butt muscles together, nice and tight, some gluteal contraction, and thenrelax. So these are called glute sets. Squeeze and relax. Squeeze and relax.

High Hamstring Tendinopathy Exercises Ep37

Is it too cliched to say High Hamstring Tendinopathyis a Pain in the Butt for Runnersé Probably! Ok so in this tutorial, I'm going to show youfive exercises we almost always give to runners who present with cases of high hamstring Tendinopathy. First we need to understand the nature ofthe injury. The clue's in the title here; high up atthe top end of the hamstring muscles we find their common origin, where their tendons insertonto the ischial tuberosity of the pelvis, that's the bony part towards the bottom ofyour butt cheek. Being a tendinopathy we know that it's thisconjoined tendon that currently in dysrepair.

This is very much one of your typical overusetype running injuries, and in my experience comes as a result of chronic overload of thehamstring tendons, usually with a more acute trigger. What do I mean by overloadé Well, if there's one thing that tendonsdon't particularly enjoy it's the combination of being compressed while under high tensileloads. They are great at dealing with tension when in an optimal position, but when youadd compression, it's a simple trigger for tendon problems.

Now, because of the specific way in whichthe tendon attaches to the rear part of the ischial tuberosity near your butt crease,loading the hamstrings in increased amounts of hip flexion will begin to compress thehamstring tendon against the bone. Repeat this excessively and you're on a fast trackto high hamstring tendinopathy. So what kinds of exercises load the hamstringsin this high hip flexed positioné Well anything that's going to force an increasedstride length, such as speed work and hill reps. These are also often the aggravatingfactors that trigger symptoms when runners are trying to trainthrough cases of highhamstring tendinopathy.

Now, when it comes to rehabbing the injury,it's important we take this understanding of the injury and it's anatomy into account.As with most tendinopathies, we need to load the hamstring tendons to stimulate healingand repair, and to build strength in the hamstring muscles themselves muscular weakness isalso a risk factor to tendon problems, don't forget! We need to ensure however that we load thehamstrings and their tendons in such a way that doesn't create this combination oftendon compression under tension. In other words, while initially rehabbing the injurywe need to look for hamstring exercises that

avoid working into too much hip flexion. I'll leave a link in the description below,so that you can find the free high hamstring tendinopathydownload on the kinetic revolution website, containing more information on this frustratinginjury, and tutorial demonstrations for some ideal rehab exercises. Be sure to check that out! To begin with we focus on isometric exercisessuch as a simple double leg bridging exercise to help engage the glutes and hamstrings,and load the hamstring origin tendon without

flexing the hip. Try varying the position of this exercise;as you start with your heels close to your butt, the exercise becomes more glute focused.Conversely, if you setup with your heels further away, creating a longerlever, you'llbe placing more of an emphasis on hamstring loading. You can build up to this! Aim for 10 sets of 10 seconds holding thebridge position. A simple progression is to incorporate a singleleg variety of this isometric hold exercise. The single leg bridge. Most runners find thismuch tougher than the standard double leg
