A PROTOCOL TO HELP YOUR HAMSTRING STRAIN


Today we’re talking about pulled hammies and how we can help them out. The hamstring needs length and strength, and importantly strength at length, meaning we need to be strong and able to tolerate stress in positions where the hamstring is on or near stretch.

Enter the Askling L-Protocol. This protocol comes from a BJSM article on hamstring strains by Carl Askling et al. Overall, athletes who did this protocol returned to sport in 1 to 2 months.
.
Here’s how it goes.
????Extender: Twice a day – 3 sets of 12
????Diver: Every other day – 3 sets of 6
????Glider: Every third day – 3 sets of 4
