EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: Some gyms will be unable to accomodate this exercise due to the nature of the movement required. Place one foot on the ground and one heel behind the pad ready to work. Support yourself at a diagonal angle, not lying down as you normally would be for a Leg Curl.
  2. REP: Raise the weight by pulling your heel towards your butt. Contract your hamstrings at the top of the move and control your descent.
  3. TIP: This is a partial rep focusing on the top half of the motion, where all the tension is. That makes this a great move to place either before light fuller reps or after heavy full reps.
