Preventing Hamstring Injury

I threw together this video to show a simple progression for slideboard leg curls. I love this exercise for hamstring injury prevention

We had a great thread on StrengthCoach.com about single leg stability ball leg curls. I prefer the slideboard versions and put this progression together. The key to any “functional” leg curl is that the glutes work isometrically to maintain hip extension while the hamstrings work concentrically  to flex the knee and eccentrically to control leg extension.
