Step Up Your Workout With Leg Machines
Help support your targeted training goals with a leg press, leg extension machine or leg curl machine from DICK’S Sporting Goods. If you’re working on your calves specifically, consider a calf machine for specialized support.
The Different Types of Leg Exercise Machines
- Leg Press Machine: A leg press uses a guided movement that helps you concentrate on lifting and lowering weight and also helps reduce your need to balance the weight. If you want additional back support, consider a recumbent leg press machine.
- Leg Extension Machine: A leg extension machine is designed to target the quadriceps using resistance. Users sit while moving a weighted bar upward with the front of their legs.
- Leg Curl Machine: A leg curl machine helps training focused on hamstrings and glutes. Users flex their lower leg toward their buttocks against the resistance of the machine.
- Calf Raise Machine: While calf raises can be done with a variety of equipment, including Smith machines and squat racks, a calf machine is specially designed to support this targeted area of training. Seated and standing calf machines are available.
The latest leg machines are durable and adjustable. They include features for ergonomic comfort and consistent, smooth movements. Many leg presses and other leg machines are designed with heavy gauge steel constructions, pin-pull adjustments and basic rubber grips. For comfort, ensure your leg curl or leg extension machine is lined with plush foam padding. Where space is limited, choose a compact leg machine.
