How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start off sitting on a leg extension machine, with both legs rested underneath the padding and your back flat on the rest behind you.

2.) Slowly, while keeping your upper body still, elevate the padding up with one of your legs, keeping the other still in the starting position.

3.) Squeeze with your quads and hamstrings on the way up, going up as far as possible and hold for a count.

4.) Return back to the starting position.

5.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
