How To Do Leg Curls Properly

  • Set up on a leg curl machine of any kind, with your feet hooked.
  • Forcefully contract your hamstrings to curl your lower leg as you press your knee into the pad.
  • Hold the top position, where you have completed a full range of motion, for a pause before slowly lowering the weight under control.
  • To put a greater emphasis on your hamstrings, point your toes as you do the lift to decrease the use of your Gastrocnemius (calf).
