Hamstring curl with the cable pulley system
you’re going to have to have some kind of ankle apparatus to wrap around there. And
it’s not going to take a whole lot of weight because you’re going to have to control a
lot of momentum. So coming in at walker ped position on all fours. Hands underneath the
shoulders. Knees hip width apart and we’re going to extend and then curl and then extend
with a slight bend in the knee. So your goal is not to lock out the knee. But you want
to stay lifted and preferably you want to stay square looking towards the ground and
release. And you’re really going to feel all that peak contraction actually when you’re
extended. So this is a constant contraction with the cable pulley system. Hence one of
the reasons why it’s my most favorite and effective pieces of equipment because it emulates
strengthening in an elongated state so you’re hitting a both a peak contraction and elongation.
10 to 15 reps. 1 to 3 sets. Each side.
