Leg press without machine?


I need to do some leg presses but don't have access to a leg press machine. I have a bench that allows leg extensions. curls , etc...
How can I do a leg press with this equipment? Or what other exercise can I do to work that same muscle? Thanks Hawg

Good old fashioned squats use the same muscles, as well as the glutes, hams and calves.

Alex, I was going to do a 5 x 5 for leg day consisting of:

standing db calf raise
standing reverse db calf raise
leg extensions
squats
reverse leg curls

Is that a good leg workout? I like the calf exercises and want to keep those but the others really don't matter. Thanks man
