Knowledge is Power
Common muscle mistake - working your quads harder than your hamstrings.
A study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found that 70% of athletes with recurrent hamstring injuries suffered from muscle imbalances between their quadriceps and hamstrings.
After correcting the imbalances by strengthening their hamstrings, every person in the study went injury free for the entire 12 month follow up period.
Now that's strong medicine.
