Whether you’re looking to prevent leg injuries during a workout or trying to strengthen weak hamstrings, Hamstring curls in standing are a simple way to warm up or exercise your legs. You can also add ankle weights to increase the intensity.

To perform hamstring curls in standing:

  1. Use a sturdy chair or counter top for balance. Keep your upper body straight, and try not to swing your body.

  2. Keep your upper leg in one spot and don’t move your hip. Bend at your knee and bring your foot towards your bottom. Come back down slowly.
