    Terminal knee extensions?

    TKE's are apparently good for rehabing knees...anyone try them? How well do they work, and how many reps, sets should I do?

    I do them before and after my workouts, usually 2 sets to failure on each leg.

    Two sets to failure? Seriously? What are you using for weight? I can't imagine doing them to failure.

    I do them fairly often when warming up for a couple of sets of 20 or so reps.

    I shouldnt say failure....but near failure basically. I was reading some Q&A on elitefts.com and they said due to the muscle type (forget which), this exercise should be done to near failure. I use a green band for these.

    By the way I do these for rehabilitation purposes.

    Ok, I'll go with that. I usually use the lights or greens, too.
