This hamstring exercise allows you to work the same muscles as a traditional hamstring curl machine, just using your body weight.
- Begin on hands and knees facing away from a solid wall, keeping your feet tightly secured to the wall and a mat under your knees.
- Keeping your feet agaist the wall and staying on your knees, erect yourself to an unpright position from your knees to your head (no flexion at the hip).
- Engaging your hamstrings and keeping your arms in front of you to catch you, slowly lower yourself to the floor, being careful not to bend at the hips.
- Using your arms to aid your return and being careful not to bend at the hips, engage your hamstrings to bring your torso back into a upright and erect postion.
