Inverted/ Vertical Leg Press
- After loading an appropriate weight, lie underneath the foot plate. Place your feet in middle, tucking your knees to your chest. This will be your starting position.
- Begin the movement by driving through your feet to move the bar upward, extending the hips and knees. Do not lock out your knees.
- At the top of the motion, pause briefly before returning to the starting position.
Variation: This can be done using a Smith Machine. Be sure to use the safeties!
