Do you give your hamstrings the attention they deserve? I'm Samantha Clayton, fitness expert and former competitive sprinter. I'm working with Herbalife to help you achieve a healthy, active life.

Today, I want to focus on an important muscle that is often underworked: your hamstrings. Your hamstrings work in perfect partnership with your quads at the front of your legs. Unfortunately, we often fail to train and stretch them effectively, which can lead to muscle stress and tears. Our exercises today will focus specifically on stretching and strengthening your hamstrings to help keep you in perfect running shape. So get warmed up and join me for a hamstring workout.

My hamstring workout for today will include the following moves:
-Plank walk out
- Supine hamstring stretch
- Seated modified hurdle stretch
- Dynamic hamstring stretch while standing
- Knee mobilization exercise
- Hip flexor and quad stretch
- Modified dead lift
- Single leg hamstring walk with lift
- Hamstring focused bridge
- Stability ball hamstring curls
- Prone hamstring squeeze
- Holding towel stretch

It is important to ensure that you do a balanced workout. If you do spend time focusing on one specific muscle group, ensure that you follow it up with a workout for its partner muscle in the same week. I hope you enjoyed this workout -- tell me what you thought in the comments section below.
