How many types of leg raise machines are there?

The two main types of leg raise machines are:

These gym machines may vary in size and weight. 

A standard leg raise machine is a single station equipment targeted only to hit abs by a variety of leg lifts. This machine is smaller, more stable and has a durable construction.

A chin / dip / leg raise machine is a complex multifunctional machine for chest, arms, legs and core that allows abs training as well. This equipment is wider, taller, heavier and some models may need to be bolted to the floor.

What is the main structure of a leg raise machine?

A leg raise machine has five main parts: mainframe, footrests, back pad, armrests and handle. 

The mainframe ensures optimal stabilization during training.

The footrests ensure an easy start for all athletes. 

The back pad is essential to keep your back healthy, without pressure or pain. 

The armrests are important for keeping a correct position during training.

The handle is crucial to help you lift your lower body part and be in control of your movements.

This structure provides support for your back, good hand grip and high level leg lifts with control and without swinging. This will succeed in strengthening the core in a superior, healthier way.

What is the difference between the dip station and the leg raise machine?

It is the auxiliary parts that makes them different. The leg raise machine has auxiliary parts such as footrest, cushions and handles, while the dip station does not do so. 

The dip station has a similar metal mainframe with the leg raise machine for good vertical and knee raises. So, you may get confused about the two machines. 

The main difference between the dip station and the leg raise machine is related to its additional features. 

The dip station structure is:

  • simpler than the leg raise machine
  • no padding support for back or arms
  • no footrests for your feet

This shortfall may cause a lot of swing during exercise. 

The leg raise machine has cushions to support your lower back during leg lifts and armrests with handles for movement control. These auxiliary features ensure comfortable use of the leg raise machine during abs workout.

Who can use the leg raise machine?

Leg raise machines are suitable both for beginner and advanced athletes to train the entire core. 

A beginner trainee must first get used to the abs routine. The leg raise machine is convenient to start with because of its foam padding and extra handles for support.  

For advanced athletes, this is an ideal way to identify weak body parts and develop a training routine to strengthen it. Isolation exercises will target unique body parts to level up muscle consistency. 

How to choose a leg raise machine for my gym? 

When buying a leg raise machine for your gym keep in mind some things: height, basement, frame and padding.

The height. A quality leg raise machine has the arm support situated at minimum 125 cm from the floor. This allows enough space for leg raises.

The basement. Stability is important during training, thus a large base and some rubber caps are essential for a great leg raise machine. 

The frame. A good mainframe is made out of steel. If it is not, make sure you ask for your manufacturer to paint your frame. In this way you prevent your mainframe from rusting. 

The padding. Cushions are placed in key spots that can prevent health damages. Thus, a professional gym equipment has dense foam pads for proper support during workout.
