The individual grasps the band/cable and brings the arm into a position of 90° of abduction while in neutral rotation. Once in the start position, the individual externally rotates the arm concentrically to achieve the 90/90 position. Once in the 90/90 position, the individual is requested to step backward 2–4 steps in an effort to increase tension in the band/cable. The band/cable is then lowered back to the start position to finish.

The concentric phase of external rotation is achieved by using the contralateral arm to rotate the arm out to the side to achieve end-range external rotation. At this stage, the individual should laterally step to the side to further increase resistance from the band or pulley. Once increased resistance is perceived, the individual slowly allows the arm to return to the start position to complete the eccentric action of this exercise.

Eccentric training should be a component of a reconditioning program for hamstring injuries upon return to sport. Exercises included in the video are eccentric box drops, eccentric loaded lunge drops, eccentric forward pulls, split-stance Zerchers, and single-leg deadlifts. These exercises create biarticular muscle function in a unilateral asymmetric fashion, similar to that needed for sprinting and most sport activities.

Upon return to sport following injury, athletes should perform trunk stabilization and neuromuscular control exercises that incorporate control of trunk rotation, weight bearing and multiple angles of hip flexion. Exercises in the video include: low to high wood chops, high to low wood chops, rotating core planks, physioball bridging with alternating leg holds and alternating hip position, and single leg stand rotating reaches.
