Hi, there. Here is another video article about the leg press. This is a great exercise where you can load up on the weights while taking your back out of the picture. This results is a focus on the legs and glutes. Most people will tell you that the best leg exercise would be the squat. But if you don’t have a strong back, you won’t be able to take advantage of more weight. The best way to really pump it up is by doing the leg press. There is another variation of this called the seated leg press which I’ve also included.
Key points to remember:
choose a weight you’re comfortable with, especially if this is your first time
have your feet about shoulder width apart
make sure your knees do not go beyond your toes at the bottom of the movement coz it puts pressure on the knee caps
don’t go lower than 90 degrees as this will put pressure on your lower back
vary your foot width from time to time – shoulder width will focus more on the outer thigh whereas a wider stance (Sumo) will focus more on the inner thighs and hamstrings
squeeze your glutes and thighs to bring the weight back up
Seated Leg Press

Hi, guys. This video article is about another great compound exercise called the Barbell Bent-Over Row. Primary movers of this exercise are the lats but you’re also gonna hit your rhomboids, traps, posterior delts, teres major, teres minor and infraspinatus. Because of that, it is recommended to have this exercise in your training regimen. I do & it feels as good as a motherfucker!
Key points to remember:
place feet shoulder width apart
place hands just outside of shoulder width
maintain an angle of anywhere between 45-65 degrees
do not swing your body up & down during the whole movement
pulling the bar to your stomach with a narrow grip hits more of your lats
pulling the bar higher (to your sternum) engages more of the traps & posterior deltoids
keep your head in the same line as your back
I hope this video helps. Again as in all exercises, practice the correct form first before adding any weight. If possible, get a spotter or someone to help make sure you go as heavy as you can without sacrificing proper form. Improper form increases risk of permanent injury.

But in the process of doing that, you will discover some things about yourself that you don’t know right now. What you’ll realize is that you are more powerful than you can ever imagine.”
