Forward Bends (26 min)
1. Types of contraction
When working with someone new to strength training would you put more emphasis on concentric, eccentric, or isometric work? Why?
2. Yoga butt!
When someone comes to you with an upper hamstring strain how could you use proximal and/or distal activations to ensure their injury is not exacerbated?
3. Pose integration
Is bending the knee of the standing leg important in a pose like Warrior 3? How might you cue this position if you wanted to emphasize hamstring activation?
