Women are more quadriceps dominant than men, and therefore tend to have weaker hamstrings. And having weaker hamstrings makes females more prone to knee injury. So, by emphasizing the top seven hamstring exercises provided in this article, you won’t just build sexier, better looking legs— you will also build a stronger, more well-balanced lower body that may be less prone to knee injury.
Out of all the muscle groups in the body, the region I get asked about most frequently by women is without a doubt the glutes. Women want to know which exercises they should be performing and which protocols they should be following in order to optimize their gluteal development.

Working out is good for you—we all know that. I have never met a client or prospective client that doesn’t understand why they need to add training into their weekly routine. The two biggest barriers to successfully getting those workouts into said routine are ultimately, “I’m not sure exactly what to do” and “I just don’t have the time.”
