Overview

The seated leg press is a machine-based exercise that targets the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. It is similar in many ways to larger leg press machines, but often utilizes a selectorized weight stack rather than plate loading. Leg press variations are often used as an accessory for squats or deadlifts, but can also be the main lower-body movement in a workout. This movement is often performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more.
