Mondays are made for legs. We are just starting our summer vacation here; what better way to keep in shape and moving this summer than working those gorgeous legs!!!
I’ve been demonstrating my favorite moves on the seated leg press machine and today is no different!! Having high foot placement on the seated leg press machine puts more emphasis on the glutes and hamstrings.
It’s important to note that when working out your legs you must ALWAYS include some sort of hamstring workout. The biggest mistake a lot of people make is not working their hamstrings on leg day.
Hamstrings are known to be weaker than your quads–when not properly worked you this can lead to injuries (ex: acl and hamstring strains).
Dedicated hamstring exercises (including exercises that bend at the knees and hips) are essential to maintaining stable joints and healthy knees.
