Lying Leg Curl Overview 

Lying leg curl directly focuses on your hamstrings building power and flexibility in your legs. If performed with the correct form and technique, leg curls hold the ability to enhance the overall strength of your leg.

It mitigates the risk of a knee injury, improves mobility, and promotes muscle growth. You can perform this exercise in an isolated manner on the machine or increase the intensity by adding dumbbells to it. 

How to Do It

  • Lie down on the machine on your belly and place your legs under the cushioned pads. 
  • Make sure to lock your ankles under the roller.
  • Now curl your legs towards your hips. Contract your hamstrings and your hips throughout the motion.
  • Slowly lower it back to the starting position. 
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Lying Leg Curl Tips

  • The roller should be placed above the ankles but below the calves.
  • Make sure your hamstrings are fully contracted to utilize the full range of motion.
  • Keep the rep timing slow and controlled.
