The leg-press machine may be scary to use, but it’s honestly very simple. And let’s not forget the fact that it’s effective in building muscular legs, and making them stronger than ever. It will also help improve your posture.
Basically, it provides a great way to work your lower body muscles, such as your hams and quads. For more information, read this leg press breakdown discussed by certified personal trainer Lara McGlashan on Oxygen Mag:

Use this leg press breakdown as your guide for your next visit at the gym. It comes in handy especially for leg-day. Just be careful because like any other gym equipment, accidents are lurking around the corner if done incorrectly. Train right, not above your limits.
This machine has a bad rep because some say it does more harm than good, and that the squat is much better to do. But hey, your body needs to use gym equipment every now and then.
For at-home exercises, of course, you can do the squat. It’s perfect for working your whole body, and it doesn’t require any equipment. There’s definitely a reason why it’s called the king of all exercises.
You can perform both of them if you’re planning to maximize your gains. But again, avoid overtraining.
