How to

Starting Position

1. Sit on a seated leg curl machine with your feet placed securely on the foot pad. 2. Adjust the thigh pad so that it is resting comfortably on the back of your legs, just above your knees. 3. Grasp the handles of the machine with both hands.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your feet firmly on the foot pad, exhale and curl your legs up towards your glutes. 2. Pause for a moment at the top of the movement, squeezing your glutes. 3. Inhale and slowly lower your legs back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you curl your legs up. 2. Inhale as you lower your legs back down.

Precautions

1. Keep your back flat and your core engaged throughout the exercise. 2. Avoid arching your back, locking your knees, or bouncing your legs off the foot pad. 3. Stop the exercise if you experience any pain.
