Leg Exercises - Seated Two Legged Hamstring Curl
Primary Muscles: Biceps Femoris, Semitendinosus, Semimembranosus
Secondary Muscles: Gastrocnemius and Soleus
  1. Adjust the back pad adjustment on the seat so that your knees are in alignment with the machine axis and your heels are resting just over the pad on the arm of the machine. Your back should be flat against the back pad of the machine.
  2. Bend your knee and pull your heels down and back until your knee reaches 90-110 degrees of knee flexion.
  3. Slowly bring your heels back toward the starting position until you are just about to lose tension in the muscle.

Helpful Hint:
Relax your calf muscles during this exercise to get the most work out of the hamstring muscles.
