Leg Press

The leg press works the following muscle groups:
  • Quadriceps
  • Hamstrings (partially)
  • Gluteus maximus
  • Calfs (Partially)
Varying the angle between the sled and the backrest and/or the position of the feet on the plate puts more emphasis on one or the other muscle group. 

The leg press is a compound exercise, meaning that it involves movement around more than one joint.
