  • Before beginning your leg workouts, make sure you’ve stretched and adequately warmed up.
  • The leg extension is best used as either a pre-exhaust or finisher exercise for the quads
  • Control the movement throughout the whole exercise. Make sure you feel the full contraction.
  • Bare all the weight on the quads. The knee should simply be a pivot point and shouldn’t bare any weight.
  • Point your toes slightly outward when performing the exercise.
  • The rep ranges Victor prefers for this exercise is 15-20 reps.
  • And his preferred set range is 4-6 sets.
