Hamstring Training Notes: although these muscles are not voluminous, they greatly contribute to great performance in those sports where the legs play a fundamental role (tennis, soccer, basketball, running, cross-country skiing and many others).

Elements of Hamstring Anatomy: the three wide muscles in the back of the thighs are called ischiocrural muscles and they include the femoral biceps, the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus. The ischiocrurals work to stretch the hip and to bend the knee.
