Single-Leg Hamstring Curl

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 left knee and push the circular pad up to bring your heel towards your glutes. You should feel tension in your hamstrings (on the underside of your leg).

Step 3

Inhale. Slowly extend your left knee to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified repetitions on the same side before completing the remaining repetitions on the other side.
