This is a variation of the leg press which targets more of the external muscles of the legs by moving your feet closer together.

Muscle group: Legs


Sit on a leg press machine with your feet on the crosspiece 6 inches apart with your toes pointed slightly outward.

Grasp the handles on the side of the machine and release the locks.

Keeping your abs drawn in, bend your knees and bring the weight as far as possible towards your chest.

Hold this position for a moment and then slowly return the weight to starting position.


Do not lock your knees at the top.
