The Hack Press is a great option to mix up leg training day. Learn how to perform this popular thigh and hip exercise with the team at Fitness Institute!

Machine: Hammer Strength Linear Hack Press

To begin, place buttocks and back in the seat provided. Press up through the heels and pull the safety lever up (Figure 1).

From here, slowly bend the knees lowering to the bottom of the squat (don’t allow the knees to travel in front of the toes). Thighs should be roughly parallel to the foot rest (Figure 2).

Extend knees with good control to return to starting position.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
