Pre-stimulation exercises are a standard warm-up phase for your hamstrings. Your thoughts are tuned to your ham during work sets, which improves your growth.
Think about it: Have you ever felt your shoulders or triceps on bench presses? Or have you ever felt like your biceps "Uncle!" during a series of pull ups? Both are classic cases of a bad connection between the mind and the muscles as well as a weak recruiting of the muscle fibers in the target musculature.
To correct misunderstandings between your mind and thigh muscles, use pre-stimulating movements before the compound movements. They improve muscle fiber recruitment into your ham before you use them with compound exercises and pave the way for explosive new growth.
And remember, the goal of pre-stimulation is not pre-emptying. It is not necessary to tire the thigh muscles before the "Big Boy" lifts. However, if you want to put some meat on the back, stimulation before stimulation is the key.
Examples of pre-pacing stimulation:
- Perform 45-degree stretch extensions before squatting. The goal is to pump the buttock muscles, hamstrings and erectors to improve the stability of the knee and improve the connection between the mind and muscle in the back chain.
- Make leg curls before deadlifting. It stimulates the connection between muscles and muscles with your thigh muscles and improves your ability to rely on your thigh muscles for a greater deadlift.
