Leg Curl Tricks
- Don't explode the weight up at the beginning of the rep. This leads to injury. Start the rep slowly and under full control. Accelerate after the first one-third or so of the movement.
- Flex your feet. Bring your toes up toward your body. This takes the calves out of the movement causing the hamstrings to have to work harder.
- Turn your toes in to work more of the inner portion of the hamstring. Turn your toes out to target the outer portion.
- Use the Gironda leg curl to hit the upper hamstrings and glutes. Just lift the upper body off the pad.
