Have you noticed the new machine in the gym? It looks a little different, but it is easy to use. Here are some variations on how to use the Single Leg Hamstring Curl.

Kneeling– Place right knee on the knee pad and left leg straight in front of the leg pad. You can lean on the arm pad and hold onto the handles. Slowly curl left leg towards glutes, then return to start. Make sure hips stay even. Perform desired sets and repeat on opposite side. For added resistance add weight plates to front weight pegs. This exercise targets hamstrings and glutes.
