Episode: 80 Is It Safe To Use The Knee Extension Machine To Train The Quads?

In this episode, Dillon, Mike, and Tommy look to dispel an old myth that using the knee extension machine is bad for your knees!!!  Where did this concept originate? Can using a knee extension machine truly damage your knees? The discussion then dives into the importance of the quadriceps muscle. How can we best isolate and strengthen the quad? Why is it so important to isolate the quad after a knee surgery? What’s the risk vs benefit of open chain knee extension post-op ACL reconstruction? Lastly, they dive into a conversation on “functional exercise”.
