The all-new Leg Extension (PPL-145) is engineered and manufactured at TuffStuff’s California-based headquarters.  Using the highest quality 2″ tubular and 2″ x 3″ rectangular steel.  Full commercial quality, all products in the Proformance Plus strength line are built to withstand heavy use by serious lifters.

Simple to use and adjust, the Proformance Plus Leg Extension (PPL-145) includes a self-adjusting foot-roll to accommodate different user’s leg lengths without affecting knee positioning.  It also includes a bio-mechanically correct angle seat pad together with 50in/127cm gas-assisted back support adjustments to easily correct body positioning and knee alignment with the axis of rotation.
