Purpose of Exercise:
TO DEFINE AND SHAPE THE FRONT OF THE THIGH.

Leg Extensions are great for getting really deep definition in the thighs without losing size, and especially for developing the area around the knees.

Execution:
Using one of the various Leg Extension machines, sit in the seat and hook your feet under the padded bar.
Extend your legs out to the maximum, making sure you remain sitting flat on the machine.
Extend your legs as far as possible until they are locked out to achieve maximum contraction of the quadriceps.
Lower the weight slowly until your feet are farther back than the knees and the thighs are fully stretched out.
To make sure you always extend your legs fully enough, have your training partner hold out a hand on a level where your feet will kick it at the top of the extension.
