Step 1: Adjust the machine lever to fit your height and sit on the machine with your back against the back support pad.
Step 2: Place the back of lower leg on top of padded lever (just a few inches under the calves) and secure the lap pad against your thighs, just above the knees. Then grasp the side handles on the machine as you point your toes straight (or you can also use any of the other two stances) and ensure that the legs are fully straight right in front of you. This will be your starting position.
Step 3: As you exhale, pull the machine lever as far as possible to the back of your thighs by flexing at the knees. Keep your torso stationary at all times. Hold the contracted position for a second.
Step 4: Slowly return to the starting position as you breathe in.
Step 5: Sets of 10-12 repetitions.
Caution: Do not use so much weight on the exercise that you are swinging and jerking as you can risk both lower back injury and also a hamstring tear.
How many sets sets should I do?
Complete 3-4 sets of the seated leg curl before moving on to the next exercise.
