Strong quadriceps or thigh muscles are the powerhouse behind optimum performance in a variety of athletics, from running and jumping to kicking and lifting. Quadriceps are also one of the largest muscles in the body. The more toned they are, the more fat you burn. Well developed quads also play a big part in maintaining balance to prevent falls. A significant fact for our senior members. And besides, developed quadriceps look great!
If you're a weekend athlete - someone who takes to sports at full force on Saturdays and Sundays - you'll especially want to focus on building strong quads during your workouts. To do so, leg extensions are key.
Specialized Fitness USA equipment allows for proper and effective leg extensions, challenging and progressively strengthening all the muscles. Your Fitness USA instructor will show you which machines are right for you and how many reps you'll need on each to get the strong defined quads you need and want.
