Leg Press

This is one of the best all-around leg exercises, and with good reason, since the leg press works most of the upper-Ieg muscles, especially the quadriceps, the muscles on top of the thighs, which help you leap and sprint.

Implementation:  To do this exercise, you'll need a leg press machine- sit in it with your feet on the foot plate in front of you (make sure the seat is adjusted so your knees are bent at about a go-degree angle or slightly less). Grasp the handlebars at your sides and hold your upper body upright, but relaxed. Now push forward on the foot plates and straighten your legs until they're almost fully extended in front of you. Keep your knees slightly flexed-not locked. Your upper body should remain upright and relaxed, and your hands should hold the handlebars for support.
