Leg extension is a popular isolation exercise that is mainly performed to target the quadriceps muscles of the legs. In this exercise, a weight resistance is used as resistance, which is placed on a weight stack. The exercise is performed by sitting on a leg extension machine with the back and head supported, the legs positioned under the padded bar attached to the weight stack, and the feet hanging freely. The exercise is initiated by extending the knees and lifting the weight upwards until the legs are fully extended. The legs are then lowered back to the starting position under control. It is important to maintain proper form during the exercise and avoid locking out the knees at the top of the movement as it can potentially cause injury. Leg extension exercise can be performed for a variety of reps and sets, depending on your fitness goal and experience level.
