Hamstrings Muscle

Hamstrings consist of three major muscles, the Biceps Femoris, Semitendinosus and the Semimembranosus, and are located in the rear thigh.
Hamstrings control the bending of the knees and have much to do with correct posture. With weak hamstrings, one may have a tenancy to lock one's knees, bringing the body over it's center line, and causing more extreme curves in the spine. Hamstrings also help us keep balanced as we walk.
