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 tell you about a secret tip you can use to target your glutes better while you do the leg press.

When people use the leg press, they often only think about pushing straight forward. However, there are different things you can do with your feet as you push that will put more of the emphasis on your glutes.

Not only can this help you build your glutes better, it can also help you take stress off of your knees and quads.

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.
