Band Nordic Curl Overview

The Nordic hamstring curl is a great exercise for people who want to improve their hamstring strength and prevent injuries. You can perform this exercise with or without a resistance band, but using a band provides some additional benefits.

First, the band helps keep your knees stable, which reduces the stress on your hamstrings. Second, the resistance provided by the band helps build leg muscles more quickly.

Finally, the band provides an extra challenge that can help you stay motivated as you work to improve your strength and flexibility. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned athlete, the Nordic hamstring curl is a great way to reduce your risk of injury and improve your overall fitness.

How to Do

  • Wrap the band around the upper part of the lat pulldown machine.
  • Place your knees on the knee pad and grab the band from behind your head using both your hands.
  • Slowly lower yourself till your body is parallel to the floor.
  • Pull yourself to the starting position by flexing your hamstrings.
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Exercise Tips

  • If you prefer a hands-free version, you can wrap the band around your chest as well.
  • Keep your hips extended throughout the movement.
  • If you need more assistance in stretching the band, grab it from a higher point.
  • Be sure you don't feel any contractions in your lower back.
