Seated Leg (Knee) Curl (Machine)

Starting Position

Raise the thigh pad to its highest position.

Sit erect on the seat with the back and hips pressed evenly against their respective pads (i.e., in the center of the pads, not to the left or right side).

Extend the knees and place the ankles on top of the roller pad. If it is adjustable, position the pad to be in contact with the back of the heels or lower calves, just above the tops of the shoes (when seated). Doing so might require someone else to reposition the roller pad, or it might require a trial-and-error approach of sitting in the machine, checking the roller pad, getting out and making adjustments, sitting back down, and rechecking it.

The position in the machine must allow the knees to be in line with the axis of rotation of the machine. If the back pad is adjustable, move it forward or backward to create this alignment.

Position the thighs, lower legs, and feet hip-width apart and parallel to each other.

Lower the thigh pad so it firmly presses against the thighs.

Grasp the side handles or seat pad.

All repetitions begin from this position.
