Training Tip - Knee Extension

The knee/leg extension isn’t something you see a lot of in the functional training space.

However, if there is a weakness in your quads it can be a great way to build up the strength required to assist your main lifts.

The reverse hyper is set up well to allow you to implement some of these and get to work strengthening your quads.

When paired with squats or deadlifts. It can also be implemented as a method to pre fatigue athletes who are quad dominant. Forcing them to use glutes and hamstrings as there quads are already fatigued.
