okay, now we’re going to do leg press. Leg Press I’ll say is a little variation with squats. It’s more for building your size in your quads without really putting any stress on your joints at all. And the one common mistake that I see with these exercises, once again, too much weight, people will load too much weight there. So make sure you always stay within your goal. Forget about who is trying to impress who cause you’re there to train and build muscle. Leg press is more like doing squats, but now you’re on your back. When you’re doing squat, your feet placement is the same. You know, you’re just pointing your toes out slightly. [inaudible] if you turn your toes in, I’ve heard guys heel Tanya toes and you’re going to feel it more on the inside or the outside. This is very bad cause when you turn your toes in, your knees are going to rotate inward.
And this is what we’re trying to avoid. You don’t need to turn your toes in Australia. Just put your feet up on the pack or the plate like you just standing and you want to do a squat. So the one to another common mistake that I see is they’re going too fast, straight up and down, and their knees are bending and they’re locking their knees out. So I’m going to show you a few of these common mistakes and then I’ll show you the proper form. What guys do in Atlanta on a leg press machine, they push off, roll it out, and is that other, the LED’s are too far out. All their legs are too far in what they do. That niece comes in and it’s on. Sometimes some of them put your hands right here and they’re doing this. That’s all they’re doing. They’re barely going down, they’re just bending the knees.
I did not feel in, there’s nothing going on in the muscle right now. You’re going to be able to lift a lot of weight, but you’re not going to really be able to load your quads properly. So the proper way of pricing your feet is you want to always go shoulder width just like you’re doing squats and make sure your toes are slightly point out towards your shoulders. And I see some guys drop their heels. Your feet to down goes to the bottom. What this will do, if you come down, your knees will roll over your toes and this is so bad for your knees, just like doing squats and going, allowing your knees to go over your toes. When you go too high, what’s going to happen is right there, my toys off. I’m just going to be pushing down too much in my hips.
So the most important thing is find your medium. Everybody’s comfortable. Medium is different. Play with it a little bit and you will find that happy medium where you need to place your feet. So when you’re coming down, you want to come down really slow right about there and make sure your knees are pointing to your shoulders, not in, not too far out. 22 your shoulders control. And when you get to the top, please don’t lock your knees. When you lock your knees, you’re not only deloading the muscle, you also put in too much stress, you know on your knee from behind so you hyper extending your knees. So when you get to the top, make sure you maintain that knee bend so that knee bed is going to make sure you keep more load going into the quads. So you want to control, push through your heels, come down.
Once your quads kind of make contact with your ribcage, that’s when you know you want to push out. Come down really slow. Maintain your shoulders and your knees pointing towards your shoulders and come up and extend to not lock your knees at the top. Bend your knees pointing to the shoulders really slow and push through your to push through your heels. Squeeze. But don’t lock your knees. So you always want to keep your hips on the pack. Don’t allow it to roll off or because when he rolls upward, you put two more stress in your lower bad. So make your, make sure your blood is red on the pack. You go down really slow and then you press up and when you’re done, just push with our locking your knees and then we hang it there. So make sure you remember all this little tips.
Don’t put too much weight on the on the machine and make sure your knees and are going in your knees angles to what your shoulder and you want to go shoulder with. Sometimes the guys that are taller, who, why their legs are a little bit so they can have more range of motion and that’s how you do a leg press.
