How To Perform Exercise

The leg press exercise is a variation of leg press workouts which targets the external muscles of the legs by placing your feet closely together.

Steps :

1.) Start off sitting on a leg press machine with your feet on the crosspiece about 6 inces apart with your toes pointed outward.

2.) Once in position, grab the handles on the sides of the machine, release the locks, slowly bend down at your knees and bring the weight as far as possible towards your chest.

3.) Hold for a count and then return back to the starting position.

4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Do not lock your knees at the top as this can result in injury.
