In this video, we will be showing you how to effectively utilize the Cybex Leg Press which is a great exercise for building overall lower body strength.
First, adjust the back pad to a comfortable angle.
Next, adjust the seat to the desired start position of about 90 degrees at the knees.
Adjust the weights to a setting you will feel comfortable lifting but will get you maximum results.
Now, position your feet on the footplate shoulder width apart and toes slightly pointed outward.
Finally, use your legs, hips and glutes to press into the footplate until your legs are fully extended and then return back to the starting position.
This machine is working your quadriceps, gluteus maximus, and your hamstrings. Try to exhale as you press forward with your legs. Keep your breath flowing, and work to keep your back position stable during the exercise, avoid shifting or allowing your back to arch during the movement.
