Single-Leg Side Leg Press

Step 1

Sit in the leg press and rotate your body onto your right side so that you are sitting on your right hip. Plant your left foot on the plate on a 45-degree angle with your toes pointing to the right. Press the footplate away from your torso and release the leg press from its locked position. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Ensure your knee remains in line with your toe and bend your knee to lower the footplate towards your torso until your left knee almost touches your left shoulder.

Step 3

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