STRENGTH TRAINING MACHINE DRILL, MODIFIED EXERCISE 1A: MODIFIED LEG PRESS
This exercise (Figure 6-21) is performed the same as the leg press. However, the range of motion is much less. As the Soldier’s condition improves, the range of motion may gradually increase until the exercise is performed to standard. The resistance should not be increased until the Soldier can move through the full range of motion and perform the exercise to standard. The Soldier may also employ the single-leg press to maintain a heavy resistance on the good leg and/or to reduce the resistance on the injured leg.
