Leg Press How To
Adjust the back of the machine to suit you.
Put on the weights that work for you and sit down.
Keep your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointing straight ahead.
Push the machine a little and unlock the guards.
Slowly lower the weight by breathing in. Never give up on your waist and back.
Pull your knees up to the end.
Exhale and start pushing the weight upwards. At the end, your knees should be slightly bent. If you do it upright and the weight is too much, it is inevitable that your kneecaps will be damaged.
When you reach the end point, hold for 1 second, breathe and lower the weight again.
Do as many repetitions as you set and complete your sets.
