Lying Leg Curls


Lying Leg Curls for the Hamstrings

1. The leg curl can be performed lying on a bed / bench or standing. When lying on a bed, lie on your stomach with arms at your sides and legs straight.
 

2. Slowly bend the lower leg at the knee, bringing your foot toward your buttocks. Stop at the point at which you cannot comfortably go further. Make sure to squeeze the muscles of the rear leg (also known as the hamstrings) while performing the entire upward movement. Hold at this point for one second.
 

3. Return your leg to the starting position.
 

This will constitute one repetition. When doing this exercise standing, use a wall or chair for balance. Lift one foot off the floor toward the buttocks and hold for one second. Lower the leg to the floor and repeat the motion for 10 - 15 repetitions, then do the same with the other leg. You may use ankle weights if you wish to increase the resistance. Make sure to exhale when lifting the leg, and inhale when lowering the leg.
