The leg extension is a strength-training exercise that works the quadriceps and strengthens them, according to Healthline. The exercise engages the core, butt, hips and lower legs. If you find Rakul’s method complex, you can also do the exercise by simply sitting straight up on a chair and lifting your legs straight at a 90-degree angle and then bringing them down.

How about trying this exercise at home without a machine?
