Standing Hamstring Machine Curls

This exercise makes use of the Leg Extension machine, but works the Hamstrings, by simply turning around to face the machine. Holding the back of the seat to stabilise, set the machine so that the pad is on your lower calf. Raise the pad up, slowly and controlled, and down again. Fully contract the hamstring at the top of the movement. Using the machine in this way can make it easier to superset, for example with Leg Extension, where a short rest period is required.
