Glute Builder: Single leg press


I’m competing Halloween weekend this year. I am determined to get my legs hard and my glutes are always my trouble spot.

I was looking at my training pics from 2012 and I have been able to get some  gains in that area but you know.. it’s a never ending pursuit.  Let’s just say, I’m hitting them harder than ever . I actually want them to be hard this year because I’m no longer bikini.

I like unilateral leg work, every other week or so. I try to mix it up. The single leg press is one I can really feel .  However, this sled is too heavy for me to get a full range of motion.
My legs are long so it’s already a struggle to get my knee close to my chest. Today, I was able to get my reps in by balancing the toes of my other leg on the sled. This allowed me to get a little assist at the bottom of the lift. It doesn’t look like I’m going very deep but on the push up, I’m feeling it like mad in my glute.

I did 90 minutes of legs today with focus on the glutes/hamies and 30 min of cardio.

So here was another version of single leg press if your machine would allow you to hit this angle. I have some interesting food angles on this one.

Good luck in your training!!
