    Shin burn during Ham Curl

    Added in some leg extensions and ham curls. Liking the hamstring and glute activation but also getting some burning in the shins, pulling pretty hard. This normal and ok? Using pretty light weight, only a 35lb. plate and going slow and strict.

    It sounds like you're pulling your toes up towards your knees pretty hard; which can be a normal, involuntary thing with that movement.

    Try a couple of things...
    ---Do some quick warmups for your shins by pointing your toes, then pulling your toes up; back and forth
    ---When you're doing the ham curl, try consciously pointing your toes either in or out and not pulling them up towards your knees

    Either way, it sounds like you just added this movement so it may just take some time for your shins to get used to being full flexed for the 30-40 seconds of a set.

    What he said

    You will naturally bring your toes toward your knees, this stretches the calf muscle and aids in knee flexion. Point your toes away and be prepared to use less weight.
    I don't know either lol
