Negative Single-Leg Press

Step 1

Sit in the leg press and plant your right foot on the foot plate. Press the foot plate away from your torso and release the leg press from its locked position. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Taking a full three to five seconds, bend your knee and lower the foot plate towards your torso until your knee almost touches your chest.

Step 3

Exhale. Taking one second, extend your knee and press the foot plate away to return to the starting position, ensuring that your knee remains in line with your toes at all times. Complete half of the specified number of repetitions on the same side before completing the remaining repetitions on the other side. Return the leg press to its locked position.
