Bodybuilding trainer Eugene Teo’s favorite hamstring exercises



Fitness instructor and bodybuilding trainer Eugene Teo published a series on “2 Best Exercises” highlighting his favorite movements that target specific areas of your body for muscle growth. Teo shared the two best exercises for building bigger biceps, growing your quads, exercising and aiming your triceps, and more.

Now Teo goes deep (down to his legs) and shares the two exercises he loves most for exercising his hamstrings.

Exercise 1: Seated leg curl

His first choice is a seated leg curl, for which you need a machine.

“To be fair, any knee flexion exercise is going to be pretty decent for the most part, but there are a few reasons I’m a little more biased toward the seated flexion,” explains Teo. “First, the amount of support that the bench provides is unmatched in any other exercise. You are literally in position with nothing to do but put as much work through your hamstrings as possible.” This is a classic isolation style exercise that can be tricky if you don’t have access to a gym.

“If you want to gain size, the more you can apply as much force as possible to the target muscle with less waste of energy, in order to maintain perfect technique or to minimize swing,” he continues.

Exercise 2: Romanian deadlift

Teo notes that this type of deadlift can be difficult for some people who may find their lower back fatiguing quickly or having trouble recruiting hamstrings at all. If you are, Teo suggests lifting your toes while deadlifting.

“It doesn’t hurt your hamstrings,” he admits. “But what it does is shift your center of gravity slightly, essentially forcing your hips to pivot backward.” He goes on to explain that in his experience as a trainer, this method was effective in teaching even the most stubborn of clients the movement pattern.

Keep this hint in mind whenever you want to try the RDL for yourself – and read this guide as it walks you through the other details of the exercise.
