      the back out of it
      This right here, always thought machines were useless until I tried the leg press. Can go heavy without being limited by the strength of my lower back and focus on the legs.

    I use it as an accessory after squats.

      I've been doing this and getting some meaty legs thanks to it. I use squats as my first excercise then squeeze the last bit of strength on the leg press.

      I'd rather use leg extensions after squats and then hit leg press on my second leg day after Deadlifts. But that's just me

    leg press is only goat if it has the plates where you can easily adjust the weight with a pin and not that kind where you have to load on plates to change it. I dont want to have to load fucking 500 lbs of plates and then get up to change them when I work a different section of my legs

      My gym has both. honestly I kinda hate the plate loaded one because it has 4 loading pins and retards come in and load it with like 20pl8 from all around the gym and do one inch reps

        exactly, the plate load kind is either covered in 1000lbs of weights or completely empty, either way you are doing a huge amount of plate changing, and then you have to do even more if you want variations on the press. fucking hate that shit.

        Any retard that does this, at this point I come by and suggest they lock out their knees for max ROM and watch as they turn into an ostrich. Punishment for hogging the plates.

      you aren't going to develop good legs with the shit "300lbs" pin loaded ones.

        One like that at my gym and it goes over 600 with a pin, don't remember exactly how high. If you're hitting depth it's enough and it's brutal.

    What if you max out the weight? Maybe do one leg on it

      You could use the plate-loaded leg press machine. I personally avoid it since it's often occupied fast the moment someone walks away from it.

        My gym has this and a plate horizontal leg press and I've become partial to the latter: it gets less traffic for some reason and the sled catcher on the vertical one fails way too often for my liking. I'm not sure what difference in muscles worked is though

          It works the same muscles, just different angles. Also depending on the stance. I use the horizontal leg press since it's barely used at my gym.

      Yes that's fine. That's what I do with leg curls. The one at my gym caps at 200lbs so I do single legged leg curls so it'll still be a challenge.

    Deadlift.
    Hits quads, hits hammies, hits glutes, and as an added bonus it hits back and forearms pretty well too. Leg press is basically just good for quads. But no low back fatigue so it's nice after Deadlifts as extra quad work.

    Hey you posted a pic of the best, most brutal leg press out there. Good job. You actually don't need anything else for quads than this machine.

    The squat? I don't know. It feels like the ultimate test of strength to me. I never feel as strong as I do after some demonic squats.

    The problem I have with leg press is that it's so hard to judge how many reps in reserve I have since it's the exercise that you can grind the hardest on and if you fail a rep you're just fucked.
