Manual Resistance Leg Extension

Muscles Used Primary: Quadricep group
Starting Position Seated on a table or chair, lean back slightly with hands grasping the sides.
Description It is best if each leg is done individually. Extend your foot forward and upward, pausing momentarily in the extended position, and then recover to the starting position.
Spotting Resistance is applied on the fron side of the ankle.
Points To Emphasize 1. If lowering the leg is too difficult during the first few repititions, the spotter can take a longer time in the raising phase (i.e, first 5 repetitions, only raise the legs [5 seconds], do not lower the leg with any resistance). On the 6th repetition, add resistance to both raising (2 seconds) and lowering (4 seconds).
2. Keep buttocks on the table or bench at all times, do not lean forward.
