A much safer option than the bench press, the chest press machine uses cables and pulleys and is on a fixed line of movement, the natural stability being particularly suitable to people with or recovering from shoulder injury.
Adjustment is a doddle; no changing weights on a barbell just move the pin from one weight to the other and keep on working out. Also possible is Single arm pressing a real no no with a weight bar.
Unlike many other leg exercises which target only one muscle, the sitting leg press targets a number of different muscles including your quadriceps, gluteus maximus, soleus, gastrocnemius, hamstrings and adductor magnus.
The ability to stimulate multiple muscle groups makes the leg press a more efficient choice for leg, hip and bottom.
The stable sitting position leads to a much lower risk of injury than using weights and squats for the less experienced.
Great for toning the quads this couldn't be easier to use; just sit on, put your legs under the pads and lift!
The weights section of the Gym is equipped with a new power / squat rack and bench for safe lifting together with a range of free weights (dumbbells, barbells and kettlebells) and bars, including an Olympic bar.
