Simple Way To Reduce Lower Back Compensation During The Leg Curl

A common compensation during the lying leg curl is excessively arching the lower back and shooting the hips into the air. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes small tweaks in technique can make a big difference with pain sensitization, performance, and efficacy of a movement.


In this video I suggest getting into a bit of a plank position on the hamstring curl machine when performing this exercise. When done correctly, a plank forces the anterior abdomen and glutes to contract, which should help reduce the likelihood of that back arching and those hips shooting upward.


Give it a shot and let me know what you think! I've been loving the home gym. If you listen closely you can hear my daughter on the baby monitor in the background. #fomo

Thank you so much for watching and enjoy the weekend!
