Exercise Description

What is the Leg Curl with Bands?

The Leg Curl or Hamstring Curl is an exercise that mainly targets the Hamstrings Muscles. In this page we will be talking about how to perform the leg curl with Resistance Bands. This exercise can also be done using the specific leg curl machine (that has many variants such as lying or standing) and do it one legged or with both legs.

The Movement

1- In order to perform the leg curl with bands we will need to lay belly to the ground.

2- Tie the bands somewhere near to the ground, as if you tie it too high it will slip from your feet on the execution.

3- Place the bands in your feet (one band in each foot) as seen in the picture below. If you place the bands as in the image it shouldn't slip along the movement. If you can't access two bands you can do it with a single leg.

4- Move yourself to a distance where you feel some tension.

5- Pull with your legs until as far as you can, hold the position for half a second in the final part and release. You can hold yourself to the ground with your hands.
