Step 1

Sit in the leg press and plant your feet on the foot plate further than shoulder-width apart, toes pointed slightly outward. 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. Bend your knees and lower the foot plate towards your torso until your knees almost touch your chest.

Step 3

Exhale. Extend your knees and press the foot plate away to return to the starting position, ensuring that your knees remain in line with your toes at all times. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions before returning the leg press to its locked position.
