A vertical leg press is quite an uncommon machine to see in many commercial gyms. However, just because they aren’t common this doesn’t mean they should be overlooked as they offer a number of benefits.
The Evolve vertical leg press is a full commercial specification and the unique design is especially used to target muscle growth to your legs with an emphasis of quads and glutes.
When you compare the movement carried out on the vertical leg press versus a standard squat you’ll find it offers more hip and leg flexion which greatly activates the glutes. They also offer a considerable amount of support to the back so, using this machine in place of squats can be more comfortable and perfect if you happen to be suffering from an upper body injury.
The vertical leg press is also perfect for effectively isolating the quads as you are forcing them to bear the load of the weight making this machine a fantastic leg builder.
Our machine features a wide base with ergonomic upholstery and head support providing comfort during your lifts. The adjustable handles, fitted to the frame, allow you to stabilise yourself during those heavy lifts whilst the safety stopper means that you won't be crushed if you fail a lift.
A super strong leg press, it runs on 30mm rails and linear bearings resulting in a super smooth action and the 8mm thick foot plate catchers offer two adjustment positions so you'll be able to find your perfect starting position.
As well as incorporating a wide footplate it’s also fully adjustable adding even more versatility when it comes to your preferred stance.
Another benefit of our machine over others on the market is that if features side loading weight horns. We opted to place them to the side as from customer feedback many find top loading weight horns difficult to load and unload and don’t like having the weight directly above their heads during heavy sets!
The weight horns allow for over 750kg of weight to be added so your certain not to outgrow this machine any time soon.
