Single-leg Press

Single-leg Press
Michael Neveux

A leg-training program in which every exercise is done both legs at a time is an incomplete one. You need to get your legs working independently of each other on a regular basis, and doing leg presses one leg at a time is one of many great ways to do this. 


  1. Single-leg Press
    Position yourself on a leg press machine with your feet hip-width apart on the platform. Use a relatively light weight—about half of what you’d use for two-leg presses. Press the platform up with both legs, unhook the latches, then put one foot on the floor. Lower the weight until your knee is past 90 degrees. Press back up, stopping just shy of lockout.
