What is a leg press bench?

A leg press bench is a gym equipment that helps strengthen legs. 

This gym equipment is also known as a leg press machine, squat press machine, or seated leg press. The leg press bench strengthens the legs by building the thigh (hamstrings), buttocks (gluteus), and quadriceps muscles.

What are the types of leg press machines?

There are two types of leg press machines, inclined and seated leg press machines. 

The diagonal or inclined leg press bench comes with a seat inclined at an angle that allows you to give the sled an upward push with your legs. The weights are usually attached directly to the sled. This design makes it comfortable because it doesn’t strain the joints or the back. 

We have the following types of inclined leg press benches:

The Seated or cable leg press bench allows you to sit upright while giving a plate a straight push parallel to the ground. This design makes it the easiest version to use among the leg press machines. 

So, it is suitable for beginners or people who want to do light leg press exercises. The weights are connected to the plate by cables. We have the following seated leg press benches:
