Rakul Preet Singh just proved that lack of gym equipment does not mean you would skip exercise. In a video that the fitness enthusiast recently posted on Instagram, she showed how to do leg extensions without the required machine.
“Excuses don’t burn calories,” Rakul captioned the video. For the exercise, she is seen balancing both her legs on top of a low table in the plank position and then bending her knee and then lifting up her body to complete one set. Watch the video:
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?
