Single Leg Hamstring Curls with Band Exercise

Starting Position

Make a loop at one end of the band and place it around your right ankle. Hold the other handle in your left hand. Stand with your left foot on the band with back straight, abs engaged, hands on hips and legs together.

Action

EXHALE: Keeping thighs and knees squeezed together, bend the right knee to curl your heel towards your buttocks.

INHALE: Slowly return to the start position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions

Keep abs in, knee on balancing leg soft, and eyes fixed on a focal point to help maintain balance. Make it easier: Bring balancing leg closer to the handle you’re holding to decrease resistance. Make it harder: Bring balancing leg closer to the working leg (the "loop" end of the band) to increase resistance.
