    Muscles worked: Quadriceps, Hamstrings, Glutes

    Instructions:
    Position yourself on the leg press with your torso against the back pad and your feet positioned on the steel foot plate in front of you. Place your feet shoulder width apart in the middle to top of the foot plate, depending on your height and flexibility a higher foot placement will feel more natural in the movement of the leg press. Next, place your hands on the handles beside you. Push the foot plate up and at the same time rotate the handles outward. You are now in control of the weight. Keep your head relaxed and your knees slightly bent. This is your starting position. Bend your knees and lower the weight towards your chest. Push the weight up to the starting position and repeat.
    Dont's:
    Don't fully extend your legs, this causes damage to knee joints. Don't place your feet low on the foot plate. This will put to much stress on knee joints. Don't lower your legs to low. This causes to much stress on the knees.

    Alternate exercises: Barbell Squats, Smithmachine squats, Dumbbell squats, Hack squats
