If you put in the work now to learn more than you need to about training (because think about it, is this going to be the LAST training article you think you’ll read?). Who knows where you’ll be five, ten, twenty years down the line.

Maybe a coronation by the Pope is in your future? And all you need to do is read a little anatomy here and there.

Training both higher reps and heavier loads

Remember strategy: leave no stone un-turned in strengthening the hamstrings.

Understanding both Hip extension and Knee flexion
