Leg presses

Legs are important part of our body. They withstand the entire weight of body. So, strong legs are always required for every person. Leg presses is an exercise that will give you strong and curly legs. This is a terrific mass-building exercise to add size to your thighs. It can be less stressful than squats to the lower back and allows you to use fairly heavy weights. 
Sitting on a leg-press machine, position your feet together against the crosspiece about shoulder-width apart and toes pointed slightly outward.Grasp the handle grips or sides of the seat.Bend your knees and lower  the weight as far as possible without changing the position of your hips.Do not lower the weight so far that your hips start to curl up off  the seat. Pause briefly, then slowly push the weight back up using your heels, not your toes. Do not lock your knees at the top, but rather take the weight to just before lock.Then begin  to lower the weight again in a slow and  deliberate fashion
