[Elite_video_player id=”357″]

Muscle Groups
  • Legs
  • Hamstring strength


The standing leg curl is an isolation exercise for the hamstrings. The standing leg curl is an excellent exercise for shaping and defining the hamstrings. If a standing leg curl machine is unavailable at your gym, a cable column and ankle attachment may be used in its place. Squeeze the hamstrings at the top for peak-contraction.


  • Standing, lift one foot directly behind you, maintaining your balance.
  • Pull the foot up as high as you can, keeping both knees next to each other.
  • Return the leg to the ground.


  • Excessively arching the back
  • Knee moving forward
