5. Exercises for Building Lean Muscle : Leg Press
Leg press work efficiently with both low and high rep ranges, and while they are more isolated than squatting since there is less intensity placed on your core, they are still a compound exercise. Leg press let you target every single quad muscle with just a few simple changes in the technique. Foot placement will change muscle focus – consider switching between narrow and wide foot placements, as well as anywhere between the middle and the top of the plate. All of these positions and all their variations provide a different level of intensity for different muscle fibers on your legs.
