Cable Standing Leg Curl

Cable Standing Leg Curl


Utility: Basic or Auxiliary
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Pull



Attach foot harness to low pulley. With foot harness on one ankle, grasp support bar with both hands and step back with other foot. Elbows remain straight to support body. Attached foot is slightly off floor.


Pull cable attachment back by flexing knee until knee is fully flexed. Return by straightening knee to original position and repeat. Continue with opposite leg.


Keep hip from sagging or from being pulled forward. Dorsal flexion of ankle reduces active insufficiency of Gastrocnemius allowing it to assist in knee flexion. Also see Cable Bent-over Leg Curl.
