Muscles aching yet? If not, give these a go!
Starting Position: Pick up your weight of choice and stand up straight with a slight bend in your knees and your feet around shoulder width apart.
Keep your back as straight as possible and bend over at the waist lowering the weight over the tops of you feet. Your knees should be kept stationary during the movement.
Focus on the stretch in your hamstrings, and continue to lower the weight down slowly as far as your hamstrings will let you comfortably.
Begin to raise the dumbbells straight back up. Your eyes should be facing up and your shoulders back. This will prevent your lower back from rounding.
Squeeze up through the glutes and hamstrings until you're standing straight up. You must know by now that we like making you sweat and so repeat for as many reps as possible for 5 sets with a minute rest in between each set.
