The Problem?

Your hips don’t come up high enough during Stability Ball Hamstring Curls.

What’s the Big Deal?

In this movement, we want your hips to be fully extended and at an end range-of-motion to enable maximum hamstring activation. By pressing your hips higher and extended them fully you create a more advantageous environment from the hamstrings to work.

The Solution?

Instead of passively raising your butt off the ground, make an active effort to press those hips up towards the ceiling. Make sure you don’t overextend the low back in the process. Do this, and your results from this exercise will go through the roof.
