How to Develop the Hams on Your
Your bodybuilding recipe is not complete without that hearty chunk
of meat you’ve been trying to whip up through months and
months of arduous gym labor.
They dangle there lifelessly – underneath your glutes -
during the dormant months. However, it’s now time to start
cooking them up in the gym.
Hamstrings may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you
think of legs. Many fitness fanatics instead focus in on grinding
the quadriceps into impressive spectacles or grooving the calves
into sharp diamonds.
Yet, hamstrings are vitally important when it comes to turning
your measley legs into hefty logs.
Here are a couple of power exercises designed to blast your hams
to full growth.
SQUATS: True, squats will not only blast your hamstrings,
but also work your quadriceps, glutes, even your lower back.
Establish firm footing at the squat rack, lodging your shoulders
underneath the barbell. Lifting the barbell off the rack, carefully

chances are, you’ve seen him rattle through a few sets of
Aside from working the back, traps, and forearms, deadlifts are
also synonymous with building big, bulging legs, particularly the
First, don’t be stingy when arming the barbell with heavy
artillery. Pack the plates on aplenty if you’re looking to
sprout muscle growth in your hamstrings.
Then, take a stance with your feet about shoulder’s width
apart. Have the bar on the floor, directly in front of your shins.
Drop your hips to a stance in which you can hold the bar. Take the
bar into your hands – arms straight – and straighten
your legs as you hold the bar at your hips. At this point, you
