Swiss Ball Hip Raise and Leg Curl

The Swiss ball hip raise and leg curl is a multi-joint exercise that targets the hamstrings and glutes and improves hip mobility and flexibility. The movement is a great way to isolate your hamstrings in a natural range of motion rather than being forced into a certain movement pattern, as is typically found on machines.
