Cool exercise from my friends down the road @p3sportscience. This exercise could be a useful adjunct for the individual in the late phases of recovery from a hamstring muscle strain or tendinopathy who needs to return to tasks where rapid, forceful hamstring contractions are necessary.
Here are the details from P3 ⬇️⬇️
This is perhaps our most appropriately named exercise at P3: The Tantrum. A truly brutal exercise that requires fast aggressive hamstring contractions. We coach only a small amount of flexion at the knee (to ensure distal hamstring involvement) and encourage the hips to be off the ground the whole time.
Difficulty can be changed with arm position (across chest=harder, pushing into ground=easier). This is usually prescribed in the latter stages of a training session due to how taxing it is on the body.

7am slim feeling VS 7pm bloat! DO YOU ALSO FEEL THIS WAY SOMEDAYS? LIKE IF YOU DO AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY TIPS OR TRICKS ⬇️ I used to always become bloated towards the back end of the day, it's like my body used to change complete. Tbh I'm thinking about taking a pic the next time I feel like this to get a real life comparison for you. I'll post it up and go into more depth on how I fix it. Below are some tips and tricks which I've learnt not to get bloated especially on a carb or cheat day:
1. Eat carbs or foods with similar fibre content to what you normally eat. If you overload with fibre your body may not be used to this which will hold food in your intestines causing the bloated look.
2. Drink plenty of water to increase digestion and absorption of foods into your bloodstream. I've noticed I drink more water when I'm leaner back end of the day.
3. Minimise food high in starch as this may react with your gut if you normally don't eat it
4. If you are becoming bloated make sure you don't have any allergies or celiac's disease which will usually results in a gluten free diet.
5. On carb day I've switched to more simple carbs as it's not extremely high in volume which means my body can process the average amount of volume I usually consume on non carb days which will hence result in no bloating. For the people that will say insulin or high GI, please... save your breathe. Insulin is always not a negative thing especially if you know what you're doing. 😆
