Isometric Single Leg Hamstring Curl – 45 Deg, Machine

  • HOW: In a seated position in the leg curl machine, get set up with the legs at a 45 deg angle and the pad just below the calf muscles. The other pad will be just above the knee cap, ensuring the leg does not move. Hold onto the handles in front or to the side to stabilize the upper body and core. Initiate the knee bend on one side by bringing the heel down. Hold for the duration prescribed. 
  • FEEL: The back of thigh is working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Do not move the torso. Do not rotate the leg.
