Default Alternative for Leg Curls on UD2.0

The seated leg curl machine is constructed so the padding goes over the tibia vs the thigh. I've noticed my knees get irritated after it's use later in the day. Any good alternatives that can be down with 2up/2down tempo?

I know RDLs, but I feel like as fatigue sets in the risk for injury increases. I'd rather keep my low back in good shape on the depletion days.

Gym has no GHR or lying leg curl machine.

I also just thought of lying prone on the seated row machine and attach both of my feet in a similar fashion. I'd look ridiculous, but I really don't give a fuh

If it works, it works. Go for it.

I once did RDLs for depletion work and then had the most awful, crippling soreness in my hamstrings for days afterward, far beyond any normal amount of DOMS. So yeah, don't do that. You could always rig up something with bands or hold a dumbbell between your feet, etc.

If you can get ahold of two furniture sliders and your gym has some turf or carpeting - lie on your back with a slider under each heel. Pull heels up to butt and then extend legs again. You can also do this with heels in handles of a TRX. Not sure how to progress this exercise though.

Or maybe kneel on a pad with feet held in place by a partner, etc. Slowly lower torso to the ground using hamstrings. Use arms if needed to return to start position. Progress by holding weight at chest.

Sounds same as slide board hamstring curls.

IME to progress stop dropping hips between reps and then if that gets too easy balance a plate on your pelvis while you are doing it.

At least that's what my trainer did...

Love the ideas guys! I think I'll use TRX and possibly add weight if needed
