3 Exercises, 1 Machine: Build Better Thighs

Tone, Tighten & Target every inch of your thighs with these 3 simple variations of the Leg Press.

Most gyms have some form of Leg Press equiptment. You may be used to just hopping on a Leg Press performing a standard press (feet shoulder width apart). However… by simply placing our feet in different positions on the platform, we can target different (and sometimes “hard to reach”) areas of our thighs.

Begin by performing a (1) Standard Press (feet shoulder width apart). Make sure that your feet are high enough on the platform so that your knees do not go over your toes.

For your second set, position your feet wider than shoulder width apart. This position is similar to a standard Sumo Squat, so I will refer to it as the (2) Sumo press. This slight variation will target your inner thighs.

For your third set, position your feet closer than shoulder width apart. Since your feet are going to be set in a narrow stance, I willl refer to this exercise as the (3) Narrow Press. This position will target the top of your thighs.

Perform 10-15 reps of each of these 3 press variations, 1-2x per week. Swimsuit season is just around the corner! Be proud to show of those killer thighs! 🙂


Stay Strong Gorgeous!
