Sled Lying Leg Press

Instructions

Preparation

Lie supine on sled with shoulders against pad. Place feet on platform.

Execution

Extend hips and knees. Flex hips and knees to descend until knees are just short of complete flexion. Repeat.

Comments

Adjust machine to accommodate near full range of motion without forcing hips to rise at waist. Keep knees pointed same directions as feet. Do not allow heels to raise off of platform, pushing with both heel and forefoot. Placing feet slightly high on platform emphasize Gluteus Maximus. Placing feet slightly lower on platform emphasize Quadriceps.
