    Default Vertical Leg Press

    I'm considering getting some sort of vertical leg press, I like the idea of more resistance compared to the traditional 45deg leg press.

    Does anyone here use one, and what's your thoughts on it's effectiveness?

    I've used one in the gym, can't get used to it, when all the way down it feels like your guts are about to explode out of your arse and the movement feels short.
    Saying that remember that I'm not the most flexible kunce and it did hit the hamies hard, may work for you.

    Never used one dark.

    But I place them in the same category as the smith, nothing inherently wrong until you are moving significant weight.

    Hi Darkoz
    Used one many years ago (Samson Brand) and did find loading and unloading plates a pain due to the height of the pins. I'm only 170cm though. It wasn't to bad and as said earlier hits the hams well. At heavy weights I did find it a bit tough on the back though.

    Neil has one out at Winning Physique, used it a few times and found it pretty brutal on the legs especially after squatting....

    vertical leg press aye.. guessing bending over for bazza wasn't working out for the hammies....

    its a good piece of equipment when used correctly, it can create muscle definition and separation my father used it in his time and he had the freakiest legs. he would put shame on even competitor bodybuilders and he loved this machine but that requires some1 to show you how its used and your a poof, so nobody will show you anyway.... i think u should buy it..

    this won't make ur legs grow any better then lunges or squats... so i like u wasting ur money and when ur done and you can't be bothered training no more give the equipment to me.

    I have used the smith machine as one ages ago, can load it up reasonably heavy 200kg.

    Can't say my legs felt any different to 45 degree press etc.

    A proper machine would be nice though.

    Can't say I have actually seen one in any gym I have been to.
    But would be interested in trying one, even though it looks awkward.

    I guess we all waste our money on something at one time or another, some on equipment and others on chemicals, zayd687.
    Say hi to your mum for me.
