Seated Leg Curl Overview

The Seated Leg Curl is an effective exercise that targets the hamstrings by bending the knees against resistance while seated, promoting strength and flexibility in the posterior thigh muscles.

How To Perform the Seated Leg Curl

  1. Adjust the machine so that the padded lever is just above your heels and the backrest supports your thighs.
  2. Sit on the machine with your back firmly against the backrest and your legs extended straight in front of you.
  3. Grip the handles or sides of the seat for stability.
  4. Exhale as you bend your knees, pulling the padded lever towards your buttocks.
  5. Continue curling until your knees are fully bent and you feel a strong contraction in your hamstrings.
  6. Pause briefly at the bottom of the movement.
  7. Inhale as you slowly extend your knees back to the starting position, controlling the resistance on the way up.
  8. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Pro Tips for Seated Leg Curl

  • Ensure the machine is properly adjusted to fit your leg length for optimal range of motion.
  • Keep your back pressed against the backrest to prevent straining your lower back.
  • Avoid locking out your knees completely when returning to the starting position to maintain tension on the hamstrings.
  • Use a controlled motion to prevent jerking, which can cause injury.
