woooo! leg press pr!
New pr for leg press took a year off from maxing to see what I could do. My best last year was 200 3 times, now i got 250 ten times after doing my normal leg workout. I am tempted to go and try it again with just one all out press to see. Gonna go max out for all the rest of the big compound lifts this weekend. Ill keep yall updated. :good:

You will thank me.

It is nice to go into the gym and max out like that.
BB Squats really are a better indicator of strength though, and they are so much harder. For example, I can get out 270 lb for 3x9 on the leg press machine, but I can only do 135-145 lb for Squats.

I absolutely love to max out, but yall are correct in saying flat press needs to be replaced with squats.

bro, squats are the king of all lifts. they work you so much more, and release more test. and are a much better indicator of strength

If your gym doesn't friggin' allow you to do the best movements out there, you should really join a different one.

wow, that is a little town for sure!
Haha- where I live there is a gym practically in every shopping center, and there is a shopping center every 2-4 miles almost. But then again I'm in Southern California, where there are a TON of really vain people that don't know how the hell to work out.

I wish ^^ kinda in a bad situation right now short on money and space not to mention my moms going through some control freak you cant have any weights in my house bull ****matta.

I think loading that BB would be good. I mean, who is really going to tell you "no you can't do that here! Bad man! Bad man!" When you are working out well?

Hehe I really doubt they will say drop it! As for Texas yes ma'm born and raised, and I would say that if you had to move to any city in Texas coming from a highly populated state like Cali Dallas Houston or Austin are your best bets.

Good deal, dallas is really a pretty nice area there are parts that aren't people stacked on top of each other. I hope you and your husband don't mind dumb rednecks because no matter where you go in texas they are always around. Best of luck to yall with the move.

How deep should one go with leg presses? I try to go till the top of my thighs touch or almost touch my stomach. Is that too low? Or, should just come down 90 degrees?

good work with the leg press and switching to squat/deads... i squat and dead quite often.. but i still love to switch it up and hit a leg press up... just be careful on your squats, only bad things about them, got to watch out for your back. maybe throw a set of goodmornings into your workout also, strengthen up that lower back.... just be very careful and keep your form.. never sacrifice alot of weight for form..
10,000 is small? well dam. im in a town of 3,000 but our gym head isnt a ****. used to be a power lifter himself... i also grew up in a town of 100. (more cattle/chickens than people) i live in kansas lol.

aha ya not the greatest place to live for some. but i enjoy it. 3,000 is just right for me. still got alot of cheese dicks who come to the gym who just stand and flex in the mirror, but just laugh at them ahah.

Leg presses hurt my knees, and with more weight round my back which is uncomfortable. Our machine is pretty ****ty though. Squats/Dead lifts/Weighted lunges for the win.
