Alternating Leg curls

This exercise works the lower aspect of the hamstrings like no other.  It has 2 advantages:

1.      By alternating, you are using a rest pause type of movement which allows you to prolong the set and maintain a greater pump, which increases strength and conditioning in the muscle.

2.      It forces each leg to work independently of the other!

Implementation:  (A)  Take a seat on a leg curl machine and hook both legs underneath it.  (B)  You will be using approximately half the weight that you normally lift with.  In this position raise the weight up with one leg until it is fully curled, pause for a second and lower.  When you return to the starting position use your opposite leg to lift the weight.  Alternate like this until you complete the set.
