Proformance Plus PPS-233 Prone Leg Curl - The Proformance Plus Prone Leg Curl by TuffStuff allows you to isolate your hamstrings in order to bring up a muscle group that, for many, is a weak point. There’s an old adage that the best physiques are the ones you notice as they walk away from you. The point here is that the muscles we can see when we look in the mirror - chest, shoulders, arms, abdominals, and quadriceps - are the ones we are most likely to focus on in our training. If a lifter is going to neglect an area of his or her physique, odds are the forgotten body part will be one that is only seen from behind - back, glutes, hamstrings, and calves. These muscle groups, collectively known as the posterior chain, not only create poor aesthetics when neglected, but skimping on training them can also lead to imbalances and injuries. This is particularly true of the hamstrings in quad dominant athletes, which are ripe for pulls that can force athletes to the bench for weeks, and sometimes months. Whether you want a more balanced physique for athletic or appearance reasons, or both, lying hamstring curls are a great way to target an often overlooked but critically important muscle group.
The feature on the Proformance Plus Prone Leg Curl that stands out the most is the V-bench design, which provides natural support and helps reduce lower back strain. Many athletes will choose leg curls to work their hamstrings over stiff-legged deadlifts or good mornings for the very reason that they should be easier on the lower back, only to experience irritation from poorly designed machines that do not conform to their bodies like this one. The foot roller adjusts with a pop pin and should rest between the bottom of the calves and the heels for the best training effect. Non-slip side handles offer support and control both during the exercise and as you enter and exit the machine. The 220-pound weight stack or optional 295-pound stack offer plenty of weight to challenge even monster squatters and deadlifters.
