Exercise Instructions:

  1. Set your foot in the center of the pad.
  2. Keep your heel flat, and lower the weight pad slightly below a 90* angle.
  3. Drive up by pushing your heel HARD into the pad, resisting the urge to lock out the knee at the top of each rep.
  4. Think of this exercise as a machine version of LUNGES. You’ll get a slightly better range of motion due to only having one foot on the pad, and this will engage your glutes a heck of a lot more than a standard leg press.

Muscles Worked:

Glutes, hamstrings, quads.
