Knee Extension Machine
An isolation movement for anterior muscles supporting the knee joint. Use with light weight as part of warm-up for other leg exercises, and with heavier weight as a finishing exercise for quads. Adjust seat so knees are aligned with axis and lever-pad so that it’s against the shins. Pause at top of movement and lower slowly. This is a non-functional movement, useful for rehab when squats and lunges can’t be performed.
