    Alternative to standing leg curl?

    Thinking of starting FST-7 hamstrings but there's no standing leg curl machine at my gym. Any alternatives?


    FST-7 Program-
    Hamstrings:

    Lying Leg Curls: 4 sets of 10-15 reps
    Stiff-legged Deadlift: 4 sets of 10-12 reps
    *Standing Leg Curls: 4 sets of 10-15 reps
    Seated Leg Curls: 7 sets of 10-15 reps

    There is this multi station but i don't have "ankle straps" as what they say i need.

    in b4 glute ham raise

    Honestly, the lying leg curl is very similar. imo what that shows is practically overkill for someone at 15. If you really want, just do 5 sets of each instead of 4. Overworking hams is one thing I'd be cautious about, having torn a hamstring ligament myself.

    It's really the most serious injury I ever sustained in many years of lifting.

    Have been having second thoughts. Maybe I'll try it later on when I get more mass on legs and think they can take it. Thanks for the answer and advice will take it.
