Hamstring slide

The hamstring slide is a bodyweight exercise targeting the hamstrings. Lying supine on a smooth surface, bend your knees to pull both heels toward you. The sliding action requires a pad, cloth, or furniture sliders under the heels. These are considered more difficult than exercise ball hamstring curls and are a great primer movement before heavy squats or deadlifts, or as an accessory movement later in a lower-body workout.


  1. Builds and strengthens the hamstrings
  2. Trains knee flexion function of hamstrings
  3. Great high-rep burnout movement or primer before strength training
