Lever 45° Leg Press (plate loaded)

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on machine with back on padded support. Place feet slightly high on platform. Extend hips and knees. Release dock lever and grasp handles to sides.

Execution

Flex hips and knees to lower lever until hips are completely flexed. Push platform by extending knees and hips. Repeat.

Comments

Adjust safety brace and back support to accommodate near full range of motion without forcing hips to bend at waist. Keep knees pointed same directions as feet. Do not allow heels to raise off of platform, pushing with both heel and forefoot. Knees should point same direction as feet throughout movement. Placing feet slightly high on platform emphasize Gluteus Maximus. Placing feet slightly lower on platform emphasize Quadriceps.
