Leg Press Start Fit Drills Exercise


Load the weight according to plan. Adjust the distance of the foot platform slightly lower than the start position. Lay down on the back support.

Press the feet into to platform. Engage the buttocks to move it back up. Extend the hips and knees


Back to the start position. Repeat for the planned number of times
