These exercise progressions are designed for a Grade 2 Hamstring Tear.
They should be close to pain-free to perform.
Hamstring tears can vary in severity from a Grade 1A (small, intramuscular, 1-2 weeks) to Grade 3 C (Full thickness tendon attachment rupture – surgery + 6months) so your exercise’s, progressions and recovery timeframe will vary depending on the severity.
