to help balance things out though would toes in extensions help because it hits the outssside of the quad? when ive been doing these as a warmup my knee feels really good
Sounds like a good enough reason to keep doing them to me.
anyone know the ligament like right below the knee, when u flez it pops up its just a straight one? thats the one thats been sorest right now which means the sides are recovered from squatting, or getting used to it and its the impact thats killing my knees since this happens every track season o_O, also yeh the extensions really warm things up i do toes in, out then straight and everything gets nice and loose, thanks for all the help guys[/quote]
The straight tendon below the knee cap is the patella tendon. If that is painful or tender, it may be patella tendonosis (an overuse injury).
Pointing the toes during leg extensions has no influence on focusing on the quad muscles.
Tendonosis (the injury formally known as tendonitis) is commonly seen when there is a lack of control/strength/balance with movement.
