The leg extension is an isolated exercise for your quads (front of your upper legs). It is a great complement to the lying leg curl, which concentrates on your hamstrings (back of your upper leg)
The leg extension requires a leg extension machine. You may need to adjust the machine so that the roller pads sit where your legs meet the top of your feet.
