Negative Hamstring Curl

Step 1

With a dumbbell clamped in between your feet, lay face down on a bench and grasp the end with both hands. Bend your knees so that the dumbbell is directly above your upper legs. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Taking a full three seconds, extend your knees to lower the dumbbell until your legs are almost straight.

Step 3

Exhale. Bend your knees to raise the dumbbell back to the starting position, ensuring that your torso remains as still as possible. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
