Ronnie Coleman Leg Press Video
I saw the video posted on here with that insane amount of weight. I'm now confident that my leg press form is perfectly fine. Of course if I tried to press as much as him they would be carrying me out of the gym on a stretcher. Still I wonder if there are any videos of him using a lot less weight and better form?.

People have the worse form on leg presses.They love loading the wieght up then doing quarter reps.I almost went to a guy the other day and say show me your legs......Then show him mine(I'm confident mine are bigger)and be like I never go that heavy but I take it down untill the knees hit my chest or even flare them out and let the sled bottom out.I'm not that way but it will put me in a bad mood when people do this.Theirs even a girl at my gym who does this!

I've seen a lot of those videos and Ron Coleman (as big as he is) has the worst form I've ever seen. He uses a lot of momentum on a lot of lifts and doesn't appear to work through a full range of motion most of the time.

It's where they're at in their game. Most of them no longer use good form (from looking at their videos) unless it's just a way to sell more videos? In the end just do what works for you and keeps you injury free.

A lot of their form has to do with just maximizing electrical stimulation during contraction to the muscles and therefore more induced growth. You will notice a lot of pros forgoing form for this tactic. I can confidently say Ronnie knows what works for him lol.

It's funny cause they say to use mainly free weights,yet I see big guys who use mainly machines.They say to use a full ROM,yet I see big guys intentionally shortening it.........

I was referring more to the big guys at my gym who use nothing but machines.Maybe not always,but my jaw drops when they walk to the free weight side.The only pro that I know of anyways that uses lots of machines is Markus Ruhel.And he is(I guess was since he retired)one of the biggest.So........

I started explosive ass reps and slightly shortening my ROM today........It was AWESOME!!!Watch Branch on his dvd unchained raw reality,and thats me now!I don't use as short of ROM as he will towards the end sometimes.Just how he normally does it most of the time.His one partner needs to lower the weight!His ROM is pathetic!He tries to keep up with Branch,but c'mon!He's ****ing Branch Warren!
