Step 1

Begin lying in a prone position (face down) on the leg curl machine. Place your legs under the circular leg pad so that your legs are straight and the pad is resting between your calf and your ankle. Place both hands on the handles. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. While keeping your torso as still as possible, bend your knees and push the circular pad up to bring your heels towards your glutes. You should feel tension in your hamstrings (on the underside of your legs).

Step 3

Inhale. Slowly extend your knees to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
