Overhead Band Assisted Nordic Curl
The nordic exercise is a great one for those looking to work on developing hamstring strength through the eccentric phase. The idea is to have the feet planted and locked and then slowly lower yourself down whilst maintaining a straight line through the thighs/hips/spine, therefore requiring the hamstrings to eccentrically control this motion. The benefit of using the band to assist with the nordic as demonstrated by Chris and Dave in the image below is that it allows you to work without a partner and also work through a greater range of motion. For anyone who has tried the nordic exercise before, the biggest issue is controlling the movement once you near the 45 degree angle.
