Hamstring Exercises with Bench
The hamstrings play a crucial role in many daily activities, such as, running, jumping, walking and cycling. Strengthening your hamstring muscles help to protect your knees from injury by absorbing the stress placed on the knee. Weak hamstrings can lead to knee injury.
A weight training bench is a piece of equipment that has a resemblance to a normal (e.g. park) bench, but is cushioned and designed for use in the weight room.
Weight training benches come in a wide variety of designs: fixed horizontal, fixed inclined, fixed in a folded position, with one adjustable portion, with two or more adjustable portions, with racks to hold a barbell, etc.
The single leg glute bridge on the bench is a challenging intermediate lower body exercise. This exercise really targets the glutes when only a single leg is used because the muscle becomes totally isolated.
