Lever Alternating Seated Leg Press (plate loaded)

Instructions

Preparation

Lie on machine with shoulder under pads. Place feet slightly high on individual lever platforms. Grasp handles to sides. Push both lever platforms away by extending knees and hips so knees are straight.

Execution

Lower one lever platform toward body by bending knee and hip until weight taps or nearly taps unused portion of weight stack. Push lever platform away by extending knee and hip. Repeat with opposite leg. Continue by alternating between sides.

Comments

Adjust bench to accommodate near full range of motion without forcing hips to bend at waist. Keep knees pointed same directions as feet. Do not allow heels to raise off of platform, pushing with both heel and forefoot. This exercise may be performed by alternating (as described), simultaneous, or in simultaneous-alternating fashion.
