Benefits

Hammer Strength Leg Press Benefits

The Hammer Strength Leg Press is an excellent workout for increasing the size of your quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus, and calf muscles.

It is classified as an isolation exercise because, unlike the Barbell Squat, it eliminates the need to balance the weight, allowing you to use more weight.

If you experience lower back pain, Hammer Strength Leg Presses are an excellent exercise to strengthen your legs.

This is an excellent workout for trainers who work with athletes that play football, soccer, and basketball, all of which require strong legs and hips.
