Can u say how to do kegal exercise for men??
This is crucial
Execute the pelvic bridge
Execute the pelvic bridge to develop hamstring, gluteal, lower back and core strength and stability. The pelvic bridge is known by several names. These monikers include the pelvic thrust, hip bridge, hip thrust, supine plank and pelvic plank. This highly effective exercise can be done in isometric and non-isometric styles.
Assume a supine position. Bend your knees and hips and place both feet flat on the floor. Place your arms by your sides. Raise your pelvis off the floor until your thighs, pelvis and lower spine are in a straight line while maintaining your shoulder blades on the floor. Contract your glutes, hamstrings and abdominals. Hold this isometric contraction for six seconds. Relax and return to the starting position. Build up to fifteen reps.
Advance to lifting one leg off the floor. Raise the pelvis until the thighs, pelvis and lower spine are in a straight line while maintaining your shoulder blades on the floor. Lift one foot about two to six inches off the floor. Contract the hamstrings of the leg contacting the floor. Concentrate on the hamstrings and on keeping your foot flat on the floor. Hold an isometric contraction for six seconds. Relax and return to the starting position. Repeat with the opposite leg. Build up to fifteen repetitions with each leg.
Utilize the fitball and combine leg curls with the pelvic bridge to escalate intensity. The unstable surface of the fitball increases the demand placed on the hamstrings to further improve strength, stability and proprioception. Start with the basic version, and then advance to the fitball version to optimize results.
Take a supine position with your hips and knees bent and a fitball underneath your ankles. Place your arms by your side. Raise the pelvis off the floor until the legs, pelvis and lower spine are in a straight line. Bend the knees and curl the ball toward your glutes. Raise your pelvis until your thighs, pelvis and lower spine are in a straight line while maintaining your shoulder blades on the floor. Contract your glutes, abdominals and hamstrings. Hold an isometric contraction for six seconds. Relax and return to the starting position. Build up to fifteen repetitions.
Incorporate the pelvic bridge in your training to strengthen your hamstrings.

Thanks a lot for these great tips for hamstring strengthening exercises doctor. I see that these are one of the exercises you recommend for pes anserine bursitis. My question is the following: I have been suffering from pes anserine bursitis for a week or so whose symptoms began after a hard interval training in running. After having seen the sports doctor here in Turkey, currently I am in the phase of dealing with the inflammation, by applying ice on the area and taking antiinflammatory pills and complete rest meanwhile. When you think would be convenient to begin with strengthening and stretching exercises? If I do the exercises like sumo squat, for example, do you think they may have deteriorating effects on my condition of pes anserine bursitis (flaring up the inflammation, i.e.) or are they completely safe in any phase of the acute injury? And, finally, when do you think it would be convenient to return to running exercises (which seems to be the triggering cause in my case)? Once again thank you so much doctor, and thumbs up for such instructive videos (and double thumbs up because it seems you show great sensitivity for those foreign followers whose native language is not English and speak slow and highly understandable manner, unlike other videos which are hard to understand for us or it is likely to lose some important points)
