Details

The TRX Hamstring Curl, also known as the Blast Strap Leg Curl, mainly targets the hamstrings. It also also targets the abs, calves, glutes, hip flexors and lower back secondarily. This exercise is both an alternative and calisthenics exercise.

Using the TRX suspension equipment, this exercise can do other variations like Hip Raise, Swiss Ball Hamstring Curl, and Leg Curl. These variations may or may not require other equipment.
