Overview

The standing leg curl is an exercise that targets the hamstrings. It is performed by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and a resistance band around your ankles. You then bend over and grasp the handles of the band with your hands. Keeping your back straight, slowly curl your legs up until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold for a second, then slowly lower your legs back down. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions. The standing leg curl is a great exercise for strengthening the hamstrings and improving flexibility in the lower back. It can also help to relieve pain and tightness in the hamstrings.
