Swiss Ball: Two Hamstrings Exercises

Reverse bridge:

Lie down on your back with a medium-size Swiss ball below your ankles. Your knees are 90 degrees. Push the ball away and toward you, back to the starting position. Do five sets of ten repetitions.

Reverse Leg Curl:

Do the above with your hips not touching the floor for the whole motion.
