So let’s recap a few main points:

  • Start propped up on our forearms or hands so you can begin in a hip extension position
  • Contract your quadriceps at the bottom
  • Then curl your legs in while still pressing your hips down into the pad to maintain hip extension
  • You may lift your knees slight off the pad to achieve more hip extension as well
  • After the concentric curl (1 second up), slowly lower your legs back down for the eccentric portion (4 seconds)
  • Do not let your hips lift up off the pad ever
  • You must have good quadricep flexibility to achieve full shortening of the hamstrings. To learn how to become more limber follow our LIMBER stretching program.
