Don’t have access to a leg extension machine? No problem! Lay on your back with your knees bent at 90 degree, place a dumbbell between your feet with the top resting above your feet, keeping your quads still, lower and raise the dumbbell to the floor focusing on your quads as you raise your feet.
You can even do these standing on one leg and raising the other keeping your quad engaged the whole time. Got a band? Stand on one end and wrap around your foot to raise and lower.

More core work anyone? Try to keep lower back pressed against floor.

Don’t have a leg curl machine? Stand on one end of a band and loop one of the handles around your other foot. Lower and raise your foot focusing on lifting the handle with your hamstrings. Or, lay on the floor on your stomach and adjust the band around your ankles or feet and bend one leg at a time focusing on your hamstrings as you raise and lower your foot.

So how much weight do you start with?
We recommend to vary your reps and adjust the weight accordingly. If your last rep isn’t “that hard” you need to increase your weight or your number of reps to build muscle.
Typically, start out with 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps and adjust the weight to reach failure by the end of the last two or three reps.
