Objective

The single-leg hamstring combination strengthens the hamstrings and develops torso stability.

While machine leg curls are single-joint, non-functional exercises, the single-leg hamstring combination is a functional closed-chain exercise that mimics the horizontal forces during sprinting. It is an excellent exercise to prevent hamstring injuries.

The single-leg hamstring combination consists of three exercises put in succession: the straight-leg hip extension, the leg curl and the bent-knee hip extension.
