Lying Leg Curls


·       Lie in a prone position, with your hips directly over the apex of the bench. Adjust your lower legs so that the resistance arm pad rests on your Achilles tendon just above the top of your shoe (above your ankles).


·       Your knee joint should be directly adjacent to the pivot joint of the machine. Grab the side of the bench for support.


·       Exhaling, contract your hamstrings, and pull your heels up and back in a wide arc until the bar comes into contact with your lower gluteals (maximum range of motion) or until your knee joint reaches 90 degrees of flexion.


·       Hold for one count at the top of the movement. Inhale as the weight is lowered in a controlled movement to the starting position.
