Performing the leg curl while seated and using a rubber band for resistance is a great way to strengthen the hamstrings.

Keep your torso upright and squeeze at the bands hardest point to achieve a peak-contraction in the hamstrings.


  • Secure one end of the band at the height of about 3 or 4 feet (using a door knob, for example).
  • Seated in a chair, secure the other end of the band to one ankle.
  • Starting with the leg straight, pull the foot down and back by bending at the knee.
  • Slowly return back up until your leg is straighten.


  • Excessively arching the back
  • Jerky pulling motion
