First, choose your weight and
sit on the leg extension machine with your legs under the pad
and your hands holding the side bars. This will be your
starting position. You’ll need to adjust the pad so
that it fits snug on top of your lower legs. Make sure your legs form a
90-degree angle between your lower and upper leg. Using your quadriceps, exhale
and extend your legs while the rest of your body remains
stationary on the seat. Pause a second and then contract
to position, then inhale and slowly lower the weight
back to the original position.

  1. Leg extension puts shearing force on the knee, which is no good. You're better off substituting this or just using it with low weight for warm-ups at most.
