Angry hamstring tendon? Give these isometric exercises a go!

For irritable tendons, isometric exercises can be useful to reduce pain. In this blog, we cover some of the exercises that can be used for hamstring tendinopathy.

Some options here include:

  • Prone hamstring curl

  • Supine isometrics

  • Standing heel drive

  • Bench bridge isometric

  • 30-degree bridge isometric (double leg or single leg)

  • Glute ham raise holds

  • Nordic curl holds

🙋🏼‍♀️Which one to chose? Quite simply the one that feels best for you, and relieves your pain the greatest!


🙋Sets & reps? Aim to hold for 30-45 seconds, pushing around 70% of your maximal effort for this duration. Repeat 3-5 times with 1 min rest in between each effort. These can be done as a warm-up before exercise to help reduce the initial pain.
