Leg Press Machine
The Leg Press Machine primarily isolates the pushing muscles in your legs and in so doing facilitate building strength in a large muscle group. Like squats, the machine mainly engages the gluteal muscles, quadriceps, and hamstrings. The calves act as supporting and stabilizing muscles throughout the movement. The benefit of of using this machine is its focused resistance to the key muscle group, helping you to push heavier weights in a relatively safe position.
