Hamstring strain injuries are endemic across a range of running-based sports. The most commonly injured of these muscles is the biceps femoris long head (BFlh), which accounts for approximately 84% of all occurrences. Recent evidence shows that elite soccer players with short BFlh fascicles (<10.56 cm) were 4.1 times more likely to suffer a HSI compared to those with longer fascicles. The aim of this study is to investigate knee flexor strength and BFlh architectural adaptations after Nordic hamstring exercise with (NHEweighted) and without (NHEbodyweight) additional weight and razor hamstring curl weighted (RHCweighted) training.
