Leg Extension / Leg Curl Machine

The leg extension / leg curl machine on the Curves Circuit will have you strengthening your quadriceps on the front of your thighs and the hamstrings on the back of your thighs. One of the benefits to using this leg workout machine is that it enables you to strengthen your quads and hamstrings without putting unnecessary strain on your lower back.

How to use the leg extension / leg curl machine

Enter the leg extension / leg curl machine and place your ankles between the roller pads. Make sure your knees line up with the hinge joint on the machine. If you are taller or have longer legs, the wedge pad may help. If you are shorter or have shorter legs, the back pad may help. Your Coach can assist in making sure you have the proper alignment. Grasp the support handles to keep your hips planted in the seat. Push the machine up as fast as you can. Avoid completely locking out your knee joints. Immediately pull the machine back down to starting position as fast as you can. Don’t let gravity help you.
