Thigh Exercises
 

Leg Press

Position yourself in the leg press machine so that your back lies against the bench of the machine.
 
Place your hands on the grips, which are usually at your side.
 
Place your feet on the footplate about hip-width apart. Push the footplate up slightly to release the satety catch. Do not lock your knee joints at any time during the exercise.
 
Bend your knees toward your chest. Descend only to the point of 90 degrees and not farther. Your knees should never touch your chest.
 
Concentrate on pushing with your heels, rather than the balls of your feet. Keep your knees in line with your feet.
 
Repeat the exercise for the recommended number of sets and repetitions.
