START POSITIONEXECUTION
Set up on the leg press machine by placing your toes lower down on the platform. Your back and head will be comfortably resting on the back rest pad and your other foot will be on the floor. Get ready to release the safety mechanism to begin your initial raise. This is your starting position.Unhook the safety and push the platform up as much as you can using nothing but your toes. Your leg should be straight and as rigid as possible (don't allow your knee to bend). Once at the top, lower the weight back down as far and deep as you comfortably can.

Finally, repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions on one side and then switch and do the same with the other leg.
