Isometric Extension

Isometric exercises involve muscle contractions with no movement of the body part (static contractions). Hip extension can be performed as shown here to work the buttocks!

Teaching Points:

  • To begin to work the buttock and hamstring muscles, the athlete lies on their back
  • They push the leg down against the surface (floor or table).
  • Ensure that the buttock muscles are contracted throughout.
