One of my favorite exercises for building Hamstrings! We started about halfway down the stack and went up weight one pin at a time! @milossarcev Rule of thumb; if you can do 10 reps you gotta keep going up! By the final set we got the stack plus 2 insurance reps😜 How many reps do you think I can get next week? @trifecta #Trifecta #ArnoldClassic2022 @arnoldsports,” Regan Grimes wrote in the caption.
