Designed To Address Function

A man using a pendulum hip press

The rectus femoris is a powerful hip flexor, largely dependent on the position of the knee and is strongest when the knee is flexed, losing power as the knee extends. Most leg presses get heavier as the weight is lowered making it difficult for the hip flexors to unload in the bottom position, this is problematic as it is necessary for the lifter to engage the hip extensors and glutes in the lowest part of the repetition. The Pendulum Hip Press was designed to solve this training issue by addressing how the musculature functions in this complex anatomical area.
