Hamstring Exercises - Bodyweight

Other ways to work your Hamstrings: Bosu Free Weight

Exercises with your hamstrings as the primary target:

  • Glute Squeeze

    This is simple enough that you can do it while sunbathing, yet it is highly effective and non-strenuous on your knees.

  • Lunges

    Lunges can be done anywhere and just a few can really fatigue your leg and hip muscles.

  • Hip Adduction With Squats

    This exercise strengthens the thighs and challenges your balance as you stand on one leg.

  • Kneeling Glute Press

    This strengthens your glutes and isolates the inner thigh as well.

  • Lateral Lunges Off Step

    The step offers height to make your hip muscles work harder in the lunge.

  • Lateral Lunges With Spiral

    Adding a twist to the lunge works your back muscles in a different way.

  • Prone Leg Lift

    This is a do-anywhere exercise to strengthen your glutes and hamstrings.

  • Stationary Lunges

    A good exercise to strengthen the entire thigh, these are slightly less challenging than lunges since you are taking forward/backward movement out of the equation.

  • Step-ups

    This exercise works each leg independently using your body weight.

Exercises with your hamstrings as a contributor:

  • Glute Press

    These can be done anywhere in order to strengthen your glutes because no equipment is necessary.
