The Leg Press Trainer is a smaller, lighter-weight version of our original Leg Press for those who are on a limited budget or only need a two-person station.This equipment provides two positions, each with self weighted resistance. The exercise places 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.
