Prevent injury: Dumbbell curl

The Prevent Injury: Dumbbell curl exercise isolates the hamstrings and focuses on building strength.


  • Lie on your stomach on a bench and hold on with your hands.
  • Hold a weight between your feet.
  • Curl your legs up towards your bottom.
  • Slowly lower with control.

Be Safe

Do slow, controlled movements to prevent momentum building in your muscles.
