The Hamstrings consist of three muscles the Biceps Femoris muscle, the Semitendinosus muscle, and the Semimembranosus muscle. These muscles combined are primarily responsible for the flexion of the knee joint (bending of the knee) as well as assisting the extension of the thigh (moving the upper leg backwards). In addition to these functions the hamstring muscles work in tandem to rotate the knee, assist in maintaining a standing position with knees slightly bent as well as limiting how far we can bend forward as we try to touch our toes without bending our knees. The hamstring muscles also play a role in our posture by assisting to straighten out the lower curvature of the spine which curves the pelvis forward when sitting.
