This exercise is a staple for building strong legs.
- Adjust the seat so that your knees have full range of motion and that the footpad fits over your legs, just above your ankles.
- Grasp the handles with your hands for support, keeping your hip and back against the bench.
- Slowly extend your legs until your knees are straight, but do not lock your knees.
- Hold for a moment and then with controlled movements return to the starting position.
Note: Use controlled movements for this exercise, do not swing the weight up.
