View Full Version : I'm confused about hamstrings...

08-08-2006, 08:20 PM
I always though of the hamstrings as the biceps of the legs. Aren't they called the femoris biceps?

To me, the biceps are a pulling set of muscles. I liken the leg muscles to the arm muscles: triceps and quads, push; biceps and leg biceps pull.

So how do squats and lunges work the hammies? It seems like all negative work. The only exercise that I see to work the hams in full rom would be leg curls.

I know that the big compounds work everything, but I just can't see it for the hammies....

Please edify me...

You know what happened...I made the thread and never looked back at it. I must've been busy and overlooked it.

I guess this thread can be either closed or deleted.

My bad...
