Leg Extenstion, Hypo-Glycemic
A while back Hypo_Glycemic and I got into a "discussion" on Leg Extensions.
While I am still not a big fan of the movement, new information has enlightened me that that are a very effect tool in leg training.
In plain English that mean, Hypo was right and Kenny was wrong and has to eat come crap. Please pass the Ketsup!
2 Mechanisms for Rapid Muscle Growth

This article is based on Brad Schoenfeld's research.
Leg Extension provide a unique end of range stress factor that promotes muscle growth.
"Movements that either place constant tension on a muscle or place the greatest tension on a muscle at shorter muscle lengths (in a contracted position) are best suited for creating a pump.
For this reason, exercises like the pec deck, pullover machine, leg extension, leg curl, back extension, barbell glute bridge, lateral raise, concentration curl, and rope triceps extension are valuable. When done for medium to high reps with short rest periods and multiple sets, they can produce a skin-splitting pump."
