The Hip Press from Rogers Athletic isn’t your old school leg press. With the Pendulum design, this piece adds training range of motion to each set. With a wide stance, the muscles of the hips and thighs can be put to their max. This piece has become a staple on leg day for many clients and athletes at SMARTER Team Training.

Adjustments are easy with the smooth sliding seat. Weight changes between and during sets or between trainees can be efficient. Using the Set Extension Technology and range limiter in combination makes leg day intense and productive. Plus the various foot position allow for a wide range of protocols to keep leg training effective.

Coach Taylor’s go to exercise…

“One of my all-time favorite go to protocols on the Hip Press has to be ‘Regression’ sets. Start with 10-12RM weight and execute six reps of four second concentric, pause, six seconds eccentric, and pause. Then rest 15-20 seconds. Repeat this sequence for 5 reps, rest, 4, rest, 3, rest, 2, rest, and 1. If you complete all 21 reps, then increase the resistance next training session. At times I will change up the protocol and do the same thing on the Reverse Glute Ham from Rogers Athletic too. Six reps on the Hip Press, then six on the RGH with no rest in between. We would go right into five reps on both pieces, then 4, and so on.”– Rob Taylor, Jr., Founder and Owner of SMARTER Team Training


Mike changes his training up with…

“We often use single leg training to address imbalances or deficiencies in our athletes. One way to do this is by alternating between the single leg Hip Press and two different variations on the single leg Reverse Glute Ham. We start with the single leg Hip Press, the athlete’s goal is to perform 15 reps each leg, then perform 15 single leg bent leg reps on the Reverse Glute Ham. Then the athlete will return to the Hip Press and try to perform at least 12 reps each leg. The athlete will finish the set by trying to perform at least 15 reps single leg straight leg on the Reverse Glute Ham. If the athlete can meet all the rep goals, 15 and 12 on the Hip Press, and 15 and 15 on the Reverse Glute Ham, we will increase the weight on each exercise.” – Mike Whitman, Director of Training

Alex keeps it creative with…

“My favorite protocol on the Rogers Athletic Hip Press is called ‘Crazy 5s.’ This protocol is 20 repetitions total – 5 with both legs, then 5 with one leg and then 5 on the other, than finishing with 5 more with both legs. We use a light weight, relative to what the athlete may usually use, as they’ll need to be able to press it with only one leg. My other favorite place to use this protocol is the Rogers Athletic 3-Way Row or Lat Combo Pull.” – Alex Walsh, Performance Coach


Riley enjoys this protocol the most…

“I enjoy administering ‘Time Under Tension’ sets. Use a time frame of 30 seconds on and 30 seconds off, four times through. This will be a total of 2 minutes of tension with a 1:1 ratio work to rest time. I personally think this a great protocol because it requires not only physical effort but a ton of mental focus throughout the reps.” – Riley Oharah, Former Performance Coach
