Leg curl

Leg curl is an exercise intended to strengthen the hamstring. Some experts claim that the leg curl is extremely targeted and does not represent a real world exertion. Because of this, they claim it does not strengthen all of the muscles groups involved and may actually cause injury when used in a real world situation.

It is often believed in strength training that in order to properly strengthen the hamstring, compound exercises should be utilized such as the Glute-Ham Raise or the Deadlift.
