Leg Press

  1. Using a leg press machine (which you should be able to find in most gyms), adjust the seat to ensure you are sat comfortably.
  2. Place your feet firmly on the platform infront of you.
  3. Bring the foot platform off it’s safety lock (check where this is before you perform the exercise).
  4. Bend your legs and bring your feet down towards your butt (image 1)
  5. Push your feet up and straighten out your legs (image 2).
  6. Bring your legs back down towards your butt and repeat this exercise for 9 more reps to complete 1 set.
  7. Once you are comfortable at performing this exercise, gradually add some weight to the machine to build strength and muscle.
