Assoc Prof Craig Hacking and Dr Jeremy Jones et al. The biceps femoris is one of the large muscles in the posterior compartment of the thigh and a component of the hamstrings . It has a long and a short head, each with different functions and innervation.

Biceps femoris activation significantly decreased after quadriceps foam rolling (F(1,16) = 7.45, p = 0.015, −8.9%). There were no significant changes in quadriceps activation after hamstrings foam rolling.
