    Basic Leg curl advice - knee clunking/catchy feeling

    Hi all, looking for some advice on a simple basic leg curl that you see scattered around in most gyms. I am going to assume that my technique and the set up for my technique is now correct. 5'10 male, seat setting number 7 and leg setting number 3.

    Okay so when I do this exercise I ensure I keep my toes pointed up throughout the full ROM, however, when the weight gets a little higher I feel this weird catching/clunking in the knee? How can I stop this or shall I just continue with it? I looked online and the ONLY information I could see relates to the quads being more powerful, and therefore they are activating first? Any help would be appreciated.

    Stop doing them and see a medical professional.
    A chiropractor,physical therapist and orthopedic doctor and get a clear answer for your issue.
    I don't clunking/catching is a normal feeling as you know.

    Nobody can diagnose problems like this over the internet. See a sports physio - don't take shortcuts with your health.

    I personally have no problem with leg extensions. Perhaps because I pay as much attention to hamstrings as to quads. Perhaps some other reason entirely. That's the problem - we are just guessing.
