Foot Placement on Leg Press for Glutes
Regardless of the leg press you use, foot placement significantly affects the muscles targeted. Specifically, where you put your feet on the platform, how wide a stance you use, and how you angle your feet.
Feet High Leg Press for Glutes
When targeting glutes on the leg press, you should generally place your feet higher on the platform. The higher you go, the more significant hip bend and glute activation you get.
On some leg presses, your feet might still be somewhat low on the platform. In the example below, I had to put my toes off the top edge!
So the exact placement depends on the leg press you use. Just remember that you should feel it more in your hips (glutes) than your knees (quads).
