Becker Built Hamstrings

2 min read

Ok people. A few weeks back I gave you my “to hell and back” quad workout that should have had you laid up for days! I got a lot of feedback from you guys saying that it was an intense but great workout. To complement that nauseating workout, I’d like to share with you my killer hamstring routine that will round out your lower body development and have your wheels screaming for mercy! These days, my training has been pretty consistent. I have a good group of guys that I train with and it’s nice to have training partners that like to train with the same level of intensity that I do. I like to split up my leg training into two parts, performing hamstrings early in the week and quads on Fridays. Because I work night shift, sometimes the days and times that I train varies. But I always make sure to get 4 days in between my quad and hamstring workouts.

I’m getting awesome results from this post-workout combination. Be sure to keep emailing me your questions and I will answer them in an upcoming blog entry. You can get in touch with me at: brett.becker@1stphorm.com. Until next time be consistent, and stay balanced!
