Equipment:Leg Extension

  1. Begin in a seated position on the leg extension machine, ensuring that your back is firmly pressed into the back pad. Place your legs under the circular leg pad so that it rests on the front of your ankle when your knees are bent to 90 degrees. This is your starting position.
  2. Inhale. Exhale. While keeping your feet flexed or in a neutral position and your torso as still as possible, extend your knees and push the circular pad upwards until your legs are straight. You should feel tension in your quadriceps (on the top of your legs).
  3. Inhale. Bend your knees to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
