    Hi! Wanting an alternative to leg extension machine. Am using a resistance band and doing single leg extensions but wondering if there was a better alternative. Have tried sissy squats but hard to do with weights and I can’t get very deep.

    Hey there- the two alternatives you explained above are the best ones you can do. If you can’t go very deep in the sissy squats, that is OK! You aren’t suppose to go deep with sissy squats like you do with regular squats (the human body can’t bend that way lol). As long as you are feeling in the targeted muscle (quad burn) that is what matters 😉
