This study evaluated the EMG activity of the hamstring and quadriceps muscle groups during resistance training exercises commonly used for training the hamstrings. Subjects included 34 collegiate athletes. Hamstring and quadriceps MVIC and 6 repetition maximum loads were determined. Data were collected 72 hours later, during the performance of 6 randomly ordered exercises, including back squats, seated leg curls, stiff leg dead lifts, single leg dead lifts, good mornings, and “Russian curls…

Using Squat Repetition Maximum Testing to Determine Hamstring Resistance Training Exercise Loads
TLDR
Results from testing core exercises such as the squat can provide useful data for the assignment of loads for assistance exercises, as well as create prediction equations for the determination of hamstring exercise load based on the squat load.
Muscle activation during lower body resistance training.
TLDR
Clinicians should consider the magnitude of muscle activation and activation ratios when prescribing hamstring and quadriceps exercises as well as the RMS EMG of the BF to RF and BF to VL activation ratios between exercises.
'Nordic' hamstrings exercise - engagement characteristics and training responses.
TLDR
Data indicate the ham strings of both limbs are engaged identically during the NHE and training results in gains in the eccentric peak torque of the hamstrings of both limb; these gains may augment the force that the Hamstrings can withstand when forcefully stretched, attenuating injury risk.
Medio-Lateral Hamstring Muscle Activity in Unilateral vs. Bilateral Strength Exercises in Female Team Handball Players – A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
Kettlebell swing, deadlift and hip thrust all produced high activation of the hamstring muscles, favoring these exercises in the prevention of non-contact ACL injury in female athletes, which should be evaluated in future intervention studies.
Hamstring Injuries Prevention in Soccer: A Narrative Review of Current Literature
TLDR
Although the prevention has increased paradoxically, epidemiological data do not show a loss in injuries and/or reinjuries but, on the contrary, they show an increase in hamstring injuries, highlighting the importance both of the improvement in the prevention programs quality and the criteria for return to play after hamstring injury.
How and When to Use an Injury Prevention Intervention in Soccer

Electromyographic Activity of the Hamstrings During Performance of the Leg Curl, Stiff-Leg Deadlift, and Back Squat Movements
ABSTRACTTo compare the effectiveness of 3 weight-training movements for the hamstrings, 11 weight-trained men performed 3 repetitions at 75% of 1 repetition maximum of the leg curl (LC), stiff-leg
An analysis of hamstring strains and their rehabilitation.
TLDR
Early controlled motion and specific exercises designed to apply to the unique characteristics of the hamstring muscles are necessary to completely rehabilitate the athlete and successfully prevent a recurrence of this injury.
HAMSTRING ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC RESPONSE OF THE BACK SQUAT AT DIFFERENT KNEE ANGLES DURING CONCENTRIC AND ECCENTRIC PHASES
This study examined mean I-EMG for the hamstring group, during eccentric vs. concentric phases of the back squat at knee angles of 160-150, 140-130, 120-110 and 100-90. A 2X4 Repeated Measures ANOVA
The synergistic action of the anterior cruciate ligament and thigh muscles in maintaining joint stability
TLDR
The antagonist muscles (hamstrings) were clearly demonstrated to assume the role of joint stabilizers in the patient who has a deficient ACL, and the importance of an appropriate muscle-conditioning rehabilitation program in such a patient is substantiated.
THE EFFECTS OF INCREASING LOAD ON ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC PARAMETERS IN SELECTED LOWER LIMB MUSCLES DURING THE PARALLEL SQUAT
TLDR
Little evidence was found that working at higher percentages of one-repetition maximum is associated with increasing strength gains, but the change between lowering and raising phases had a greater effect on muscle activation parameters than changes in load.
EMG analysis of lower extremity muscle recruitment patterns during an unloaded squat.
TLDR
Results revealed minimal hamstring activity as compared with quadriceps activity during an unloaded squat in healthy subjects, and this low level of hamstring EMG activity was interpreted to reflect the low demand placed on the hamstring muscles to counter anterior shear forces acting at the proximal tibia.
Muscular coactivation
TLDR
It was concluded that coactivation of the antagonist is necessary to aid the ligaments in maintaining joint stability, equalizing the articular surface pressure dis tribution, and regulating the joint's mechanical imped ance.
Stance width and bar load effects on leg muscle activity during the parallel squat.
TLDR
The results suggest that stance width does not cause isolation within the quadriceps but does influence muscle activity on the medial thigh and buttocks.
Atypical hamstrings electromyographic activity as a compensatory mechanism in anterior cruciate ligament deficiency
TLDR
Atypical hamstring muscle activity may be a compensatory mechanism by which copers enable themselves to perform on a normal level.
Electromyographic and Kinetic Analysis of Traditional, Chain, and Elastic Band Squats
TLDR
The results question the usefulness of performing squats combining barbell and weight plates with chain and elastic resistance, as well as mean and peak vertical ground reaction forces (GRFs) for 3 conditions of the back squat.
