The supine leg press exercise targets the muscles in the back of the hip and leg, and the front of the shin. These muscles are important for posture and balance.
Begin lying on your back with both knees bent, arms by your sides, and palms facing up.
Straighten one leg. Pull your toes and forefoot up towards your nose. Press the back of your leg into the floor, as if making a deep impression in sand. Hold for 5 seconds. Relax.
