How To Use The Hamstring Curl Machine

Instructional Video


Written Instructions

  1. Follow the individual machine’s guidelines on how to set up the hamstring curl machine as every machine is slightly different. Ask a member of staff in the gym or a more experienced gym goer for help.
  2. The starting position should have your leg straight out in front of you.
  3. Keeping your back and bum firmly against the seat, squeeze your hamstrings pulling your feet towards your bum.
  4. Once you’ve hit an angle greater than 90 degrees in the leg, slowly allow your legs to come back to the top, stopping just before the weight stack hits together.
