Do not use this leg extension exercise for low-rep, high-load strength conditioning to avoid the risk of any possibility of knee ligament strain. Use a moderate load for the leg extension weight and follow the instructions below as to the number of recommended leg extension reps. Avoid doing this leg extension workout with any speed as you’ll just use momentum rather than engaging your muscles and don’t lock your knees at full extension. This can strain the knee joint.

The Best Lower Body Leg Extension Machine Session

Work out with one of our leg extension machines at the Xercise4Less gym leg station for a leg-building boost.

Choose a moderate weight and sit on the leg extension workout machine with your legs under the pad, your feet pointed forward and your hands holding the side bars. This is your starting position. Adjust the pad so that it falls on top of your lower leg just above your feet. Ensure too that your legs form a 90-degree angle between the lower and upper leg to prevent undue stress at the knee joint.

Using your quadriceps, extend your legs to the maximum as you exhale. Ensure that the rest of your body remains stationary on the seat. Pause a second on the contracted position. Slowly lower the weight back to the original position as you inhale, ensuring that you do not go past the 90-degree angle limit on the leg extension machine.

Do three sets of eight to 12 leg extension machine repetitions.
