This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing how to properly use the leg press machine and make sure you are being safe and effective while doing so. The leg press machine is one of the most effective tools for building the strength and function of your leg muscles, but you need to make sure that it is being used correctly in order to minimize potential risks. Today, we want to talk to you about how to strategically choose the angle of the back of the seat when using this machine.

The angle of the seat can have a tremendous influence on how your body feels during and after the exercise. While many people choose the angle based on comfort, there are some variables that you can consider in order to be more strategic with how you are setting the seat. 

Not only will this tip help improve your experience while doing the leg press, it will also help you get better results from doing the leg press, too. Your joints can stay safer, your muscles can grow more and become stronger, and you can feel better overall simply by considering a few simple variables when deciding what angle to set the back of the seat.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss more considerations when using the leg press machine.
