The leg extensor is the front thigh muscle. It is the antagonist to the leg extension muscle and consists of four strands. These lead from the knee to the hip joint and to the pelvis. The leg extensor is responsible for stretching the knee during running. Due to our predominantly sedentary activity with bent legs, the leg extensor muscles shorten and thus often shorten the groin. To prevent this, you can train and build up the muscles with EMS training and a EMS device!
How to place the electrodes correctly for EMS training of the thigh muscles
Here you can see the correct electrode placement on the thigh and the program selection for your strength training, endurance training and muscle mass. We recommend the electrodes 10 x 5 cm or the electrodes 12 x 7 cm for the application.
