Today I decided to start with the leg press and see how heavy I could go.
There were already plates stacked on the leg press by a young fellow who used the machine before me. I thought I could never press that much weight since my strength has dropped a great deal compared with 2 years ago, so I took a lot of plates off of the machine.
I started the exersice and figured I could go a little heavier, after a set I added more weight, another set, more weight, another set, more weight resulting in the total weight of the young fellow before me. Yes that felt really good.
So the 5 sets of leg press are done with the working weight, meaning all of the sets I did before with the ‘lighter’ weight count as a warmup.
