Do you think that elevating the toes when executing RDLs can increase the stretch in the hamstrings?
I find that clients that struggle with pushing the hips back benefit from having their front feet elevated. I sometimes use this method myself. I feel a better stretch, despite my hip mobility is very good itself. I cannot find any study that corroborates this so I’d love to hear your opinion Joe and Bryce!
Thank you Joe. 100%, I use it only probably the first time if the client doesn’t get that hamstring stretch feeling. Although I also find that giving other cues give better results with the hip hinge! So yeah it makes sense, anatomically the hamstrings don’t cross over the ankles so absolutely. I’ll actually never use it again 😅
