Hamstrings Week 6

This week we’re at the halfway point of Shattered! for hamstrings. Today, we’ll perform the same exercises as we did in Week 5, but we’ll do so using giant sets. You’ll use the same sets and reps, but instead of resting between sets, you’ll perform 1 set of each of the 3 different exercises and then rest for 2 minutes before the next giant set.



* Choose a lighter weight even at the beginning—remember that in week 5 you worked with a weight that took you to failure before resting. Now you need to go with a weight that allows you to move directly into the next exercise in this giant set.

* Use a full range of motion and really emphasize your target muscles at the beginning—don’t “save” your hamstrings for the work to come. You can always rest-pause to complete any part of this giant set.

* Don’t forget to reserve all of your stations so you can perform each of these giant sets without resting.
