Straight Leg Raise

Straight Leg Raise

This exercise is paramount to regaining active control of your quadriceps muscle and to strengthen the muscle on the front of your thigh.
  1. Tighten your quadriceps muscles on top of your thigh first. You should aim to straighten your knee completely by tightening your muscle.
  2. Keeping your quadriceps muscle activated, slowly lift your straight leg in the air to equal the height of your opposite knee
  3. Slowly lower to the ground or table. Then relax and repeat again.
  4. The key here is that you fully activate your quadriceps muscle before lifting your leg in the air. Your knee should stay completely straight as you lift in the air
