Hamstrings Week 5

We’re already past the one-third point in the Shattered! hamstrings program. Things are going to get more interesting now because you’ll be incorporating two new moves into this program—stiff-legged barbell deadlifts and stiff-legged cable deadlifts. And then we’ll finish this workout with lying leg curls as a finishing exercise.


You should be noticing more size and detail in your hamstrings at this point. Make sure you’re paying full attention to your nutrition and supplementation — in addition to your workouts. Never forget that muscles don’t increase in mass only because you trained them with intensity: You have to provide the nutrients that help spur growth, and those come from quality supplements such as those from Kaged Muscle® as well as from a nutrition program that provides plenty of protein, slow-digesting carbs and healthy dietary fats.



* It’s crucial with stiff-legged barbell deadlifts to visualize your hamstrings working so that you don’t use your back. Don’t think about bending over—concentrate on pushing your hips back to feel your hamstrings work.

* Stiff-legged cable deadlifts is a less common move for hamstrings, and it’s good to include lesser-known moves as well as the basics for more complete hamstrings development.

* Note that I stand on a plate to further emphasize my hamstrings with stiff-legged cable deadlifts. Check out my video for more about how to perform this unique exercise.

TIP: Prepare all of your supplements ahead of time. You should have RE-KAGED® in your shaker so you can just add water and drink it at the end of your workout. The window for helping your muscles start to blunt catabolism and support recovery doesn’t last long. Don’t miss this vital opportunity
