In this video I discuss some easy ways to assess your posterior (back side) thigh pain or injury. Calf, hamstring, or glute max injury? Most don’t know how to figure out what they have injured let alone how to even begin to heal it. Hamstring injuries are very common, but I see them needing to be treated much less than most other injuries. Typically the calves and glute max are fatigued so the hamstrings become injured by working too hard – “pulled”.
I also demonstrate two exercises that can be incorporated into your rehab or training routine to improve strength, balance, and fitness.
Check out the Knee Pain Video too for more info regarding injuries to the hamstrings, glutes, and calves.
And special thanks to my friend and kettle bell mentor Clifton Harski at BA training in San Diego for giving the okay and pointers on my form in the exercises shown. So if I suck, really Clifton sucks and you can be the one to tell him that. Check him out.
