Single-Leg Prone Curl


For the single leg prone curl lie face down on the floor with elbows bends so you are propped up on your forearms. Rest the top of your left foot on top of your right heel. Bend your knees, treat your left leg like a weight, and use your right leg to lift it towards your behind, and then lower it back down to complete one rep. Do three sets of 20 repetitions to maximize the benefit of the exercise on the hamstrings.
