Building Blocks: The TRX Series Day 4

Posted by Nick Folker on Nov 4, 2015 5:03:00 PM

Find me on:

The Hamstring Curls is a great subsitute for weighted exercises when travelling. A quick tip for this version - it is best to choose where the bands can freely hang down.


TRX Hamstring Curl
Lengthen the bands to hang about 1 and a half feet off the floor. Seated, place one heel in each band. Lie flat on your back with your feet suspended directly under the band. Raise your hips off the floor to form a straight line from your shoulders to your heels. Without raising your hips too high, bring your feet slowly toward your body. Range of motion will vary indivudally based on flexibility and strength levels. Pause when you are at your maximum range. Return slowly to the start position. Pause again without letting your hips sag. Repeat the movement slowly for the prescribed number of reps.
