The best hamstring exercise. How to make the Nordic ham curl machine for $1
The Nordic hamstring curl is probably one of the best exercises for strengthening the hamstrings (the backside of the upper legs). If your gym doesn’t have a Nordic hamstring curl machine, or maybe you don’t have one at home, you can make it with heavy dumbbells, a thick mat, a Bosu or a step, and pipe insulation that I bought at Home Depot and cut.
This is an advanced exercise, so start with just a few reps, with just one set; I don’t want you to pull a hammy! Make sure to foam roll your hamstrings after you perform this intense, effective exercise.
