I’ve been known to admire some muscles here and there. You know, you glance back at someone lifting a heavy object and appreciate their bicep, or you admire the abs on an Olympic swimmer on television, or even the quadriceps or calves on a runner. Or okay, let’s admit it, you’ve admired triceps at the cross-fit gym (but only through the window—you wouldn’t want a cross-fitter to get a big head!) But never, in all my muscle admiration, have I ever said, “would you look at those hamstrings!”
That’s the farmer muscle. I know bending over so much sounds like a back exercise, and it is, but nothing works more around here than the hamstrings. I mean, try it! Fold over umpteen thousand times in one day and you’ll notice that it’s your hamstrings that are hurting the next day.
They’re subtle; they’re usually covered up by shorts or skirts or pants so we don’t tend to notice them, but man, do farmers have them. Well, at least farmers on Tumbling Shoals Farm. So, just because, here's three cheers to farmer hammies!!!
