Exercise of the Week: Hamstring Curl

You might’ve done hamstring curls using a leg curl machine, but with ExcelCord you can do this exercise (and many more!) almost anywhere. So how does one perform a hamstring curl using ExcelCord? Start facing away from the anchoring point lying face down (feel free to prop up your upper body with your elbows if that’s more comfortable) with your legs straight. Slowly bring your right heel to your upper thigh before returning to your original position. Repeat with the opposite leg. This is one rep. For an added challenge, simultaneously perform the exercise with both legs. We recommend working your way up to three sets of 10 reps.
