INSTRUCTIONS

Prep

Go to the leg curl machine and adjust the padding according to your height.

Start

Ensure that your legs are fully extended and you can grab the handles of the machine for stability.

Movement

Curl up your legs while lifting your lower legs to full contraction of your muscles.

Pause for a moment and slowly lower the weight down to the start position.

End

Once completing your set, re-rack the weights as needed or wipe down the equipment used.

TIPS

Ensure that the movement is slow and isolates the muscles rather than forcing an explosive movement.
