We used to think the abdominals flexed the trunk. We used to think the anterior tibia dorsi-flexed the ankle. We used to think the hamstrings flexed the knee. This was all thought until we biomechanically analyzed the function of each muscle, joint, and nerve in the body. We now realize that they don’t all do what we initially thought. In this issue of the Functional Video Digest Series, Gary Gray describes the true function of the hamstrings. He dives into the complexity of the hamstring by providing a thoughtful and helpful explanation from the point of view of the hamstring. Using a biomechanical understanding, he affectively analyzes their authentic function and their role in the chain reaction of the body. Join Gary as he shows just how much you can learn about the hamstrings…just from riding a horse!
