Hamstring curls, also known as leg curls, are great to train hamstrings whilst minimising stress on your knee joints. As well as adding strength and improving flexibility to your hamstrings they also target your glutes and thighs, this happens when you are lowering the weight back down as you’ll notice that the resistance shifts slightly.
It’s easy to forget your hamstrings during a leg workout but by implementing leg curls in to your routine you’ll help achieve an equal symmetry to your lower body so make sure to factor them in on leg day. Strong hamstrings will also help to stabilise your knees and minimise injury and pain.
These machines are also great for reliving any tightness you may have in your quads as during the movement it stretches these muscles helping to reduce any tension.
The Poseidon plate loaded leg curl is compact in nature so you'll find you don't need a huge amount of floor space to accommodate this machine.
Unlike other hamstring curl machines where you find the weight getting lighter as you proceed through the movement, you won't find this with the Poseidon as it's built making use of a leverage system which keeps the weight consistent giving your hamstrings a proper workout.
The heavy duty rollers offer eight adjustments so you're sure to find the correct and most comfortable starting position that suits you best. You can also choose to add some extra weight horns for plate storage helping to keep your gym floor clear and plates on hand.
