flexo-extensión (en rotación) (de pierna)


Explanation:
After checking through various sites, for refs to the equipment, including this definition extracted from one of the pages " The leg curl is the reverse of the leg extension". Please refer to the page below (Google list of references)

http://www.google.com/search?q=flexo-extensin pierna&hl=en&lr=...

However I also found this definition, and the exercise is ROTARY:

"This rotary-form exercise supplies resistance over a full range of lower leg rotation about the knee joint".
VER esta pagina que lo explica todo (inglés)
http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.medxonline.com/page...

However, my conclusion is that the curl refers to bringing the leg back in after extending it.
