For the free-weight user, the machines provide the opportunity to train in patterns not achievable with dumbbells, bars or cables. The leg curl is an excellent addition to leg training as it allows the individual to directly target the hamstrings.

Cybex International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of premium exercise equipment, is pleased to be launching its Plate-Loaded Kneeling Leg Curl, the latest release in the company’s line of innovative strength-training machines.
The Plate-Loaded Kneeling Leg Curl is intended for fitness facilities that wish to feature a complete complement of plate-loaded machines in a dedicated area for those members who prefer to train on plate-loaded machines and free-weights.
Improving upon an earlier design, the new Plate-Loaded Kneeling Leg Curl features ergonomic upright positioning and forearm pads, both of which ensure the comfort of users and reduce the possibility of hyperextension in of the spine. The product’s cam and cable drive system also allows it to recreate the proper strength profile to a degree that lever-based systems cannot.
"For the free-weight user, the machines provide the opportunity to train in patterns not achievable with dumbbells, bars or cables," said Steve Suchanek, director of product management for Cybex, adding the leg curl “is an excellent addition to leg training as it allows the individual to directly target the hamstrings.”
