leg press question.....?
what is the perfect form when doing leg press? i cannot seem to put my hands on the side i always place them on my quads. also i cannot seem to lower the weight enough to the point wherein my thighs are perpendicular to my chest, i always go 90> degrees. this fine? thanks

i put my hands in the air or hold the top of the head rest, and i go all the way down untill you hear the legg press clink the bottom

My rips kind of slope away from my body so when I go too far down my thighs start to crush my ribs. It sucks but at least I know that is as low as my body is going to allow me to go.

I put my hands on the handles, and let the leg press go as far down as it wants to. My quads touch my chest.. knees by my face.

i guess if i cant make my quads touch my face i think it means that i am lifting too heavy of a weight? i will try lowering the weight next time.

yeah i'd suggest lowering the weight if your form doesnt look good... i guess that goes for every exercise tho

whatever you do, just make sure you are fully seated while doing the leg press. i see so many people trying to do too much weight and are practically out of the seat.
gripping the handles will help stabilize your upper body while you perform.

I do somewhat shoulder width stand and legs almost at the top of the press machine so that when I go down my knees are at my shoulders and above my ankles...got it?

just make sure that when you do leg presses that you don't go so far down that your back rolls off the back of the seat. very bad for your lower back.
