Single Leg Extension Machine
- (See your notes) Position the machine so as to maximize range of motion. The farther you need to bend your knee in the bottom position, the better. If seated, put the seat back all the way to allow 'laying back' (posterior pelvic tilt) for maximum quad stimulation.
- Hold yourself on the seat by grabbing the seat itself or the handles.
- Push the pad with your leg all the way up but do not lock out your knee, then smoothly lower all the way back without letting the weight come to a dead stop (i.e. avoid relaxing your quadriceps).
- Complete reps with one leg before moving on to the next leg.
