Has anyone tried hanging from a bar with a dumbbell between the legs and trying to do leg curls?
For leg/knee raises it works fine, I'm asking cause I don't want to injure myself in the gym while experimenting exercises.
For people who tried it, does the dumbbell between legs work? if not are there better alternatives, like maybe using bands as resistance or using dipping belts with plates...
So I tried it by myself,the dumbbell between legs only works with small dumbbells. 10 kilograms at max
With the dipping belt it works fine with the plate behind the back and allows to use the most weight, but it doesn't give any resistance in the bottom part of the exercise and after a while either the grip or the trapezius get too fatigued to keep doing the exercise.
Bands are by far the best as they be placed in different ways and still work, but again has the same limitations of the dipping belt.
