Feb 09, 2011
The best way to emphasize the biceps femoris or the hamstring muscle is to execute the Lying Leg Curl. To avoid one leg dominating the other during the movement one of the techniques you can do is to alternate the legs allowing for a contraction to happen one one leg at a time thus stressing only the working leg. Make sure not to arch up a or allow your hips to rise up off of the bench. squeeze your glutes and then curl the leg. This will put the majority of the stress on the working muscle and not other assisting muscles to finish the movement.
