Be sure to keep your balance so the weight doesn't roll off and crush you. Start with the bar and work your way up to 315.

I hope this is a really, really bad joke.

Is it for deadlift assistance? Squat assistance? More quad work? Hamstring work? smile.gif

I don't know. It's just one of the lifts in IA SPBR. Haven't been in a gym in months so basically starting all over, just need a good routine to stick to for now.

Hack squat machine is a good alternative in that case.

For all you dudes with Instagram @igfitclub is a good one to follow if you like fitnessy hot chicks..

And I've seen guys using the smith machine as a leg press similar to what Eason described. Might actually make a smith machine useful

You assume I have access to that instead biggrin.gif I need to just pony up for a real gym. The one at my apt is abysmal and one at work is passable.

Thanks. I had only found a requote of the partial text, so it didn't list all the subs.

Trying to decide between Coldsnapped vs. Coldsnatch after that....

Quit being such a baby and just lift and post normal shit for fuck's sake.

front squats are a great substitute for leg press, not to mention if you are sticking with things long term i would much rather put effort into getting a great front squat as opposed to stacking plates on the leg press.

as far as thread content goes, this thread takes a giant shit whenever there is seriousposting involved so we just need to keep it on the fine line just shy of jimmie rustling

Yea, that's the reason I do light curls and some light tricep high rep pushdowns after my lockout/heavy tricep work.

Compression sleeves will help a bit.

I wear neoprene elbow sleeves when I press and squat. Doesn't put any numbers on my lifts but helps my elbows feel much healthier.
