Eccentric Exercises for Injury Prevention
Hamstring Eccentric Exercise
Muscle and tendon injuries tend to occur when the muscle is overloaded, especially in a lengthened position. Eccentric exercises load the muscle while it is getting longer. This type of training has been shown to help prevent injuries.
In a kneeling position with a partner holding your ankles, lean forward as far as comfortable and then fall to the floor before you move past tolerance. With training you will be able to lean farther forward before falling to the floor. Begin with 5 reps and increase as able.
