Overview

The hamstring slide is a bodyweight exercise targeting the hamstrings. Lying supine on a smooth surface, bend your knees to pull both heels toward you. The sliding action requires a pad, cloth, or furniture sliders under the heels. These are considered more difficult than exercise ball hamstring curls and are a great primer movement before heavy squats or deadlifts, or as an accessory movement later in a lower-body workout.

Variations

Variations of fitness exercises refer to different ways of performing a specific exercise or movement to target various muscle groups, intensities, or goals. These variations aim to challenge the body differently, prevent plateaus, and cater to individuals with varying fitness levels.

Alternatives

Alternative exercises in fitness refer to different movements or activities that target similar muscle groups or serve the same training purpose as the primary exercise. These alternative exercises can be used as substitutes when the original exercise is unavailable or challenging to perform due to various reasons such as equipment limitations, injuries, or personal preferences.
