Leg Press Machine, 45 deg

Type: Legs
The 45 degree leg press is a great way to work the muscles in the buttocks, thighs and calves. It's easier for less experienced exercisers to perform than a barbell squat because the fixed path movement of the machine requires less technique, but it allows you to work with increased weight to quickly develop strength in the legs and buttocks.
Level :  Equipment : Yes

Leg Press Machine, 45 deg Steps:

Step 1:
Load the machine with an appropriate weight for the exercise and goal you are working towards.
