Overview

The single-leg leg extension is a popular machine-based exercise for the legs, particularly the quadriceps. It is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of a leg pre-exhaust or as a muscle-building movement for lower-body training. Performing it one leg a time allows you to focus on the mind-muscle connection of each leg and address muscle imbalances.
