Most soccer players are quad dominant because all we do is run forward. Running forward consists using the quad more often than the hamstring. We also are always in an athletic stance when on defence so that we are able to recover or retreat when an offender is attacking. When we are in that stance we are using a lot of quad to hold that position. I am not saying that when running forward you do not use your hamstring. But what I am saying it is not under consistent tension like the quad for a long period of time. So when we start to sprint hard and when we do a lot of them that is when the danger comes and we pull a hamstring because it is not strengthened enough for the work that we just did. Or it is just weak.
