Leg Curl
Works the hamstrings

The Leg Curl is one exercise that can be performed in a variety of ways. And I have seen a variety of leg curl machines throughout my years of training. Some require standing, others lying on your stomach, some sitting down and in a pinch, you can strap on an ankle weight and your perform the leg curl in the comfort of your living room!

1) In our example, the leg curl is performed on two machines. In both instances, you are pulling your ankles towards your buttox. You are pulling for a two second count and releasing for a four second count.  In either case, you will have some type of support to grab while pulling.
2) Make sure you are able to move the legs for the full range of motion without stress or too much body movement.
