Leg Extension Machine
There`s some debate regarding Leg Extensions, with some people feeling the exercise contributes nothing to leg development, or that it can be damaging. Certainly damage could arise from trying to lift poundages or perform rep ranges that are excessive. But regarding the effectiveness of the exercise for building muscle - if controlled progressive weight traing principles underly the routine then some muscular growth will be experienced. Not as much as you would get from Squats or Leg Presses. A Leg Extension is an isolation exercise, afterall. So if compound movements such as Squats cannot be performed, Leg Extensions will be useful as a means to exercise the quadriceps.
