What are the benefits of using a leg curl machine?
The leg extension is one of the most effective exercises for building muscle in your legs and toning your lower body. By isolating the quadriceps muscle group, a leg extension machine allows you to focus your workout and build strength in your thighs quickly.
Leg extension machines are also fantastic for your knee joint health, and can help reduce knee pain by strengthening the vastus muscles. These provide support for your knee joints, so exercising them can help with rehabilitation after an injury, or help prevent future injuries.
How often should I use my leg extension machine?
The answer really depends on your goals. If you want to build-up strength in your quads, a good benchmark to start with is two to three days a week. In terms of sets and reps, three to four sets of between 10 and 12 reps is a good workout, but you can always reduce this to 8 reps as you go.
On the other hand, if you're aiming to get better definition in your legs or improve your overall fitness by building muscle, you’ll probably want to try less resistance but more sets and reps. You can also increase the intensity by using the machine more frequently through the week, so long as you’re still taking a few rest days to recover.
What’s the best leg extension machine?
With so many different options on the market, it can be hard to figure out which option is best for you. One major factor to consider is whether you’re looking for a seated leg extension machine or a standing one—standing machines will typically be designed to function as leg curl machines too, with a wider range of features to allow you to carry out more varied exercises.
