Today we will go through the swiss ball hamstring curl. Gemma will be demonstrating this for us today. This is a great exercise to work the hamstrings and the glute muscles.

We will have Gemma perform a couple of repetitions for us now and assess her technique. As you can see her feet are up on the ball, putting her weight through the heels and bringing the ball in. Keeping her hips up and keeping as straight a line as she can through her shoulders, hips and feet.

Common Error

One common error which is seen with this exercise is not keeping the hips up as you bring your feet in.
