    LMAO. They filmed that and posted it!?! It don't count unless your knees smash your chest. For me at least. She might as well have done calve raises. It would have been more affective.

    My best was 1080 (12/side) for 8 (w/ a couple of spotters on hand!)

    THese days I cap it at 6-7 plates / side or more like 4-5 / side for drop rep sets, or 1-2 plates / side for alternating leg drop rep sets. Its hard to get creative high rep actiion when you're training by yourself,

    My wife, at 130# did 180 x 50 for a finisher after our conditioning day.

    She also squatted 420 at 133 in her last contest. As in - depth judged, in a real meet, 420lbs.

    I concur MOST people leg pressing use poor form and half reps only, I would focus more on quality movements and taking it DEEP like my buddy LK suggests...lol

    The one and only time I ever showed off in the gym, as I typically am the getting my shit done haven't got time for ego games. Was when 3 tards with sticks for legs maxed out the press and did less ROM then this chick. One of these brofessors all hyped up on his ego after maxing out the press came up to me bragging as I was doing some light weights on the press next to him. Told me if I want to get big legs I need to step up my game. I'm completely covered up with baggy pants on mind you. I dropped my pants had shorts underneath and said you mean like these. My legs are probably double his as I'm genetically blessed in the leg department visually not strength wise. They kind of felt embarrassed and walked away with a deflated ego.

    I agree with GiantSlayer... it's really not about how heavy you can go. I use two plates, sometimes 3 per side but no more than 3. I also like the security of a smith machine while performing my squats. I don't work with a partner so safety is an issue with me. But if you get 12 good deep squats with 2 plates a side for 4 sets should make your legs not only strong but bigger. I've never had problems with my legs, I love 45 degree press machine also. Now there I can stack on the plates. You want to burn your hind end do 45 degree seated presses. Also I love the Hack but like my squates I don't exceed 2 plates a side. Something else you may want to try is straight legged deads. You don't need a lot of weight, the bar and a few dimes will do the trick, but that burns the hell out of your hams.
