Exercise Ball – Hamstring Curl

Lie on your back with your arms down by your sides and your heels resting on an exercise ball. Squeeze your core and your buttocks and lift your hips up. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders all the way to your feet.

Bend your knees and draw your feet in towards your buttocks slowly as far as you can without having to arch your back. Return the legs back out straight to your starting position. Repeat this movement for the number of repetitions directed by your clinician before lowering your body to the mat and resting.

Repeat for the number of sets directed by your clinician.

Top Tips

Draw your belly button into your spine to activate your local core and support your lower back. Place your tongue on the roof of you mouth and relax your jaw to support your neck.
