Heavy Leg Press

Heavy Leg Press exercises focus on building leg muscle strength and endurance through high-resistance pressing movements.


Teaching points:

It is best done with a leg press machine, but you can do a weighted box squat as a substitute.

  • Perform a slow controlled leg press (no more than 90 deg knee bend)
  • 3 seconds concentric (pushing up) and 3 seconds eccentric (lowering down)
  • So one rep should take 6 seconds
  • Aim for 6-8 repetitions only and perform this exercise 3 times per week
