Leg press. This is a machine I utilize in my programming and often see people misusing. As you can see, this is a typical diagonal leg press machine. Nothing fancy. More often than not, the sled will probably weigh more than you do. Because of this, the sled will cause you to lift up. We want to prevent that and remain anchored in so we can lift safely.
Next time you’re using the leg press, try using a pad to encourage full range of motion. Lie back, point your toes out so that your knees can travel past your torso, make sure the safety pin has proper range of motion, lift sled up, and hold onto the handles at the bottom. Experience full rang of motion while working quads and inner thighs.
