Leg Press observation
I usually do squats for my legs, but recently bought an angled leg press machine to add to my leg workout cause I wanted to do more bulking type excercises for my legs.
Since I have started using the leg press, my legs seem to take like a week or so to recover just from the soreness, especially soreness right above my knee. I have been using this leg press for about 2 months now. I started out with low weight and was able to up the weight once I got used to this. Is this normal?

Yea i love presses I do them after my squats so I'm already burned but they kill my legs real bad especially the vastus medialis (the tear drop muscle above the knee) I do my legs on monday and they are now feeling better so yea it's all good. You can also switch up your foot positioning on the press from normal to a more outward position to hit the inner quads.

I was doing nothing but leg press all summer. I was doing 630 for 10 and felt like I wasn't getting anything more out of it. Now I switched back to squats and then some leg presses afterwards. I had trouble walking for a couple days after that. My thighs are growing again.

Well you know if the rooms not spinning and your not ready to puke you just aren't doing it right. That's why I hate squats I think. I've been doing hacks with the smith rack and have trouble getting down the stairs to the bathroom. I walk like a retard.
