45-Degree Leg Press

 

Overview

The 45-degree leg press is a safe and effective way to exercise the major muscles groups of your legs. The leg press is a good alternative for people who are unable or uncomfortable with performing a back squat. An advantage of the leg press is that it allows you to use more weight than a free weight squat. It's also to add variety to your workout routine.

Description

  • Lean against the back-rest with your chest up and your back straight.
  • Set both feet up on the push plate, about hip-width apart.
  • Press the push plate so that both legs straighten.
  • Return slowly to the start position.

Mistakes

  • Rounding the lower back
  • Hips elevating off the pad
  • Buckling the knees inward
