Tantrum Kicks and Hamstring Activation

Whats the name of that thing where people will put an exercise ball under there heels and kick into it really fast almost like a spasm?

ok I found they're called Tantrum Kicks but is anyone here familiar with what the supposed adaptation is? I keep seeing them and I want to understand what they're for

@imDrake757 ATG stays on the side of progressive overload and measurement, wherever possible. I haven’t found such drills necessary for exceptional hamstrings development and bulletproofing. Sprinting itself with gentle, progressive adaptation would be the best “drill” in my opinion, just as I feel the same way about jumping. The drills I see actually lead to LESS results because they deviate attention from what works better. This was my observation as a coach to hundreds of athletes consistently getting outlier results: measurable, progressive overload plus master the sport itself.

What drill do you prefer/recommend for "waking up" the hamstrings for explosive movement?

@imDrake757 Ham curls are great because you can start light and warm them up. 🔥
