The Leg Press is an extremely important exercise. It involves some of the most powerful parts of the muscular system. This equipment provides three Leg Press positions, each with a different level of resistance. The exercise places particular emphasis on the quadriceps, gluteals, and hips. Since the level of resistance is modest, the exercise avoids risks that are are associated with heavy squats in a standing position.
Most individuals will perform a large number of repetitions, perhaps as many as 20 to 30, which introduces greater cardiovascular benefit to compliment the power developed in the legs. For maximum resistance the exercise can be done with one leg at a time.
Also, one may choose to use the piece of equipment to perform calf raises in a seated position, one or two legs at a time. With fully extended legs, press the toes into the platform and push yourself up and away from the supports using the calf muscles.
The Leg Press equipment is built of heavy gauge steel, making this and all other Outdoor Fitness equipment very durable.
