  • Adjust the machine so that the backs of your knees are snug against the edge of the seat. Place your legs on the ankle pad with the pad just behind your ankles and below your calf muscles. Secure the lap pad so that your knees are secure.

  • Engage your abs and bring your heels towards your hips, pause at the furthest point you can without arching your back, then slowly extend your legs to the starting position.

  • The adjustments on leg curl machines can vary, so ask someone or read the instructions on the machine to figure out your personal settings before using the machine.
