leg extension


 Leg extension:

The leg extension is a resistance weight training exercise that targets the quadriceps muscle in the legs. The exercise is done using a machine called the Leg Extension Machine. There are various manufacturers of these machines and each one is slightly different. Most gym and weight rooms will have the machine in their facility.

This is an easy exercise to do at home, its my personal favorite. If you don’t have a multi-purpose bench with a leg attachment, you can build a leg extension setup with just a leather belt, a dumbbell, and a harness.
Starting Position: Very important, don’t go lower than this as its really bad for your knees.
Ending Position:  Move the weight slowly and steadily to the horizontal position, try and hold this for a second before lowering again.
