Department of Physiotherapy, School of Health Sciences, University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland, Lausanne, Switzerland
J Athl Train 47:390-5. 2012..Most hamstrings exercises are performed at an inadequately low hip-flexion angle because this angle surpasses 70° at the end of the sprinting leg's swing phase, when most injuries occur...
