What you are doing is a different exercise...From reading the responses
the guys are comparing the weight and style to the way they are doing it.
WORK OUT TO DEVELOP ENERGY.... AND BUILD STAMINA..Comparing everyone's
way doing a Leg Press.. is pointless as I'm reading that they are all doing it differently.. which is OK.. but you can't put a Right or Wrong on the exercise.
When I work out on the Leg Press machine.. I do full extentions.
starting with 450 540 630.. Over 720 I do partials and my reps are higher 50.
I've done in one set 100 partials with 1000 lbs. and the highest in speed rep attempt
up to 1840. We ran out of weights. I enjoy speed reps doing partials.. On the upper body
on a given day I like 5 sets of 100 reps (partials) on the Hoist Incline press.
130 150 200 230 250 my reps drop to 75 with 275 300 as I work myself up to 400 lbs.
I consider these exercises to aerobic in nature and great for the heart lung.
By the way. I'm 83 years old. Back to the Leg press I like to do sets of 50 reps
with a thousand. ... several sets.
WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR MAXIMUM IN THE LEG PRESS EVENT.. PRETTY DOESN'T COUNT
ASS HOLES.. I DON'T WORK OUT TO IMPROVE MY STYLE.. THAT'S FOR BALLET DANCERS
