  • L E G   E X T E N S I O N S   (XERBAND)
    Muscles worked: Quadriceps

    Instructions:
    Lie down on the floor or a exercise mat and lean back on your elbows. Place your feet through the xerband. Keep the band secure to the floor with the your right leg. With foot flexed and toes pointed up, extend your working leg up in a semicircular arc towards the ceiling until it is completely straight. Hold there for one second and contract your quadriceps (Thigh) tightly. Lower your leg back down slowly to the starting position and repeat. Be sure to do the same number of reps on the other leg.
    Note If you are not getting enough resistance with the xerband you are using, try a larger band.
    Dont's:
    Don't kick your leg up abruptly Use a slow controlled motion.

    Alternate exercises: Lunges, sissy squats
