When working out your legs you want to really isolate the muscle as much as possible. When doing a leg extension on a machine you want to make sure to set your machine to fit you perfectly.

When you first start you want to keep your leg and foot straight for five repetitions; pivot your toes in for five more repetitions; then pivot your toes out five repetitions and finally straighten your toes forward for five repetitions, then rest. Complete a total of 20 repetitions. Then repeat for a second set.

When performing leg extensions keep your movements slow controlled and hold it at the top of the extension at each repetition. By rotating your feet positions on your leg extensions you will feel the work deeper in your muscles.

Just remember slow controlled and remember to follow the joint when you're doing these exercises.
