Single-Leg Press

The single-leg leg press is an exercise targeting the quadriceps one leg at a time. Many lifters prefer the leg press to squatting for several reasons, including the perception that it’s safer for the spine.


  1. Builds stronger, more muscular quads
  2. Using one leg at time allows for heightened focus
  3. Also recruits helps from the hamstrings and glutes
