Leg Curls on the Powertec LeverGym

Here is a short video of how to do lying leg curls on the Powertec LeverGym. This video is also applicable to the Powertec Leg Lift Attachment on the Powertec Utility Bench. The trick to doing the exercise properly on both Powertec machines is to really concentrate on the negative movement. It is not like a cable leg curl where there is constant tension. Really concentrate on letting the weight down slowly from the contracted position. If you do this properly you will isolate the hamstrings. It is one of my favourite leg exercises and I like doing them after squats or leg presses on the Powertec Compact Leg Sled. If you have trained your legs hard the leg curl will finish off your legs nicely.
