How do I adjust the leg trainer correctly?

In the starting position, you should always slide your buttocks all the way to the padded backrest and straighten your back. The padded rollers should be positioned depending on whether you want to train your quadriceps or hamstrings. In any case, the joint of the combination device should be at the height of your knee. If quadriceps training is planned first, position the lower padded roller just above the ankle. The upper padded roller is in the squat position.

If you then want to train your hamstrings as part of your leg workout, the lower padded roller should be positioned approximately above your Achilles heels, just below your calves. The upper padded roller should be positioned slightly below your knees.

How do I train correctly with the leg extension machine?

The correct execution of the exercise with the leg curl-leg extension combination device is essential to prevent injuries. When performing the exercise, the stretching movements should take place over the entire length if possible.

The optimal weight for your leg training with the leg extension fitness machine depends on your training level and your physical fitness. However, you should note that the exercise should not take more than 2 seconds concentrically and 4 seconds eccentrically. Important: Avoid turning your knees in and out. This is very dangerous!

  • The ideal exercise routine looks like this:

Stretch: 2 seconds

Flexion: 3 seconds

90° bending: 1 second.

Repetitions: 10-15

  • Execution of leg training: With this training focus, you lift the weight from the ankle by stretching the knee or knees in front of you. This is similar to a kick in football. Make sure to perform the exercise slowly and in a controlled manner. Your back is straight on the backrest. Your upper body is stable and maintains a constant sitting position. Breathe out when lifting and breathe in again when lowering.
  • Execution of leg curl training: For this training focus, you should press your heels down and at the same time bend or bend your legs backwards as far as possible. In fact, pull your heel towards your buttocks. Then slowly bring the weight back, but never fully straighten your legs; always leave them slightly bent. Exhale when bending and inhale again when returning to the starting position.

Is training with the leg extension machine harmful to the knees?

No. Training with leg curls and leg extensions is not harmful to your knees. This opinion is simply the result of incorrect use of the fitness equipment. Quite the opposite. Using them even has therapeutic value and is often used after knee injuries. It stabilizes and strengthens the knee joint. In order to prevent injuries during leg training, however, correct execution (as described above) is important. This means avoiding "throwing the weight upwards".

If you are using the leg extension machine in the gym or for rehabilitation purposes due to a knee injury, it is recommended that you move the upper padded roller a little closer to the knee. This will reduce the load on this knee and increase the regenerative effect.

Which exercises with the leg trainer?

When training on the leg extension combination machine, there are only limited variations compared to other fitness machines. This is not least due to the importance of a controlled exercise execution that minimizes injuries. However, there is the option of doing the exercises with one or both legs. The only difference is that one or two legs are positioned under or over the padded roller. Of course, you should also use less weight with the one-legged version, as the load on your knee is significantly higher.

How to do proper leg training with the leg extension

In order to set up and implement your leg training correctly, it is first important to understand what leg extensors (quadriceps) and leg flexors (hamstrings) are. The leg extensor, also known as quadriceps, is a muscle group located on the front side of the thigh. The antagonist of these muscles is the leg flexor, which is located on the back side of the thigh. The muscle groups are responsible for extending and flexing the leg and thus a pronounced function of these muscles is essential for every athlete, whether footballer, strength athlete or swimmer.
