Leg Press
Leg Press Technique - With the Leg press, it's crucial to use correct exercise technique for optimum results as well as to minimise injuries. Place your feet shoulder width apart, or a little wider. Lift the bar off, unracking the weight. Ensure that the knees are never locked, making sure that there's always a slight bend - even at the starting position. Lower the weight to about a 90 degree position. Take the weight down slow, & squeeze up for about a second. Drive through the quads, hamstrings & glutes. Ensure that you use a full range of motion (avoid partial reps), but don't lock the knees out at the top of the movement. Some people describe this as 'keeping the knees soft.' Don'ts: Besides avoiding partial reps and locking the knees, also avoid bounce the weight off your belly which can strain your muscles and put you at risk of injury.
