Yukon HLS 2000 Leg Press Review

Best Leg Press for Home GymsThis is a leg press you’ll see most often in gyms. It’s size makes it almost impossible to add to your home gym. As well, most homes gyms already come with a seated leg press, attached to the weight stack.

For the trainer that values a hard workout, and if there is room to install, I suggest the Yukon HLS 2000 leg press, hack squat. It’s about 48″ wide, 79″ deep and 68″ high. It weighs 465 lbs. This is a very heavy and strong leg press. With 3 plate bars, you can add over 15 lbs of weight to the press. Because the bars are directly underneath the press, it saves on installation space. You don’t have 2 side posts sticking out. The wide foot plate is adjustable, depending on the height of the user. It also doubles as a hack squat, with the foot plate being removable.

The sled is run with 4 large sealed bearing rollers, making the movement very smooth. There is no jerking motion. The back pad offers support for the head as well. The hack squat has 2 built in shoulder pads that do not need to be removed to work the leg press. You can also perform seated Donkey calf raises. The spotter arm has 4 positions to set the sled on for safety purposes.

This leg press can be sold as light commercial. I’ve sold it to a few schools. It can take abuse and is very smooth and safe.

For a great leg workout, I suggest getting the hamstrings worked on first with a few sets with the hyper extension machine, setting it so the stress is on the hamstrings. Then on to the leg presses. Start of with about 20 reps with just a couple of plates on the bars just to get blood and oxygen into the muscles. Increase the weight, every set, and take longer breaks between sets as you go heavier. Put your hands on your knees to make sure your legs don’t move side to side. Also make sure the knees and toes are pointed in the same direction. Do not point the toes out. Make sure the pressure is on the balls and heels of your feet. If you’re building for muscle size increase, you may go down to sets of 3 or 4 reps. Make sure you have a spotter for safety. If you play a sport like hockey, go much lighter with sets of 12 to 15 reps. You want to increase the size of your capillaries to bring in more oxygen. This will increase your endurance and prevent lactic acid buildup in the muscle.
