🚨Single-Leg Cable Curls Proper Form 🚨
🎯Target Muscles: Hamstrings
3 things to avoid:
❌Cable Machine Too High – Notice the height of the cable machine in the first frame. This setting will not allow you to completely retreat, and you will not get a full stretch of the hamstring.
❌Partial Reps – leg curls can be an uncomfortable exercise for many people. If you do not pull your foot as close as possible to your butt, if your quad does not come off the bench and does not give a full stretch below, you will not use the entire length of the hamstring muscle.
❌Not A Full Squeeze- At the peak of each set, if you do not squeeze and do not hold even a full second, you limit your muscle contractions.
3 things to include:
✅Cable Machine Low Setting- The lower setting provides a full stretch of the hamstring.
✅Full Range of Motion- A full range of motion allows you to use the entire length of the hamstring muscles.
✅Full Squeeze Up Top- Full compression up is the key to full compression.
