Eccentric Knee Extension

The Eccentric Knee Extension targets muscle lengthening by focusing on the controlled lowering phase, strengthening the quadriceps effectively.


Teaching point:

  • This is best done on a leg extension machine at the gym
  • Sit on a knee extension machine with your back straight and knees bent at a 90-degree angle
  • Secure your ankles behind the padded bar
  • Extend your knees to lift the weight as usual
  • Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position, taking about 3-5 seconds to do so
  • 3 sets of 15 reps
