Banded hammer strength leg extensions with hip extension
Banded hammer strength leg extensions with a extended hip. I also recline the seat back much further this helps extend your hips forward (simply put, squeeze your glutes so you’re slightly off the seat). I performed rear pauses here which means stopping at the bottom of each rep this eliminates momentum and creates consistency with tension and reps. Keep your toes flexed up (dorsi flexion) and imagine you’re extending your feet along the floor line, so you’re kicking outward rather than upward. You’ll notice your quads contract immediately this way.
