Secondly Addd, you might have been seeing more gains just because you were doing more volume. There is nothing to say that you couldn't have got better results doing a different leg exercise, like a few more sets of a squat variation.


I disagree - my core gets tired way before my legs when im squatting. Therefore I start to fold under the bar easily and that is an injury risk. Plus, my back is still quite weak and prone to easily being overtrained by exercises such as the squat and deadlift. Thus leg press works my leg strength without the increased risk of injury which comes from squat variations. (especially when you are as uncoordinated as I am)

I'm doing legpress because:

* I enjoy them
* I find they transfer over well to my deadlifts because the weakest point of my deadlifting is the use of leg drive, and the movement at the bottom of the leg press feels very similar to the movement at the bottom of the deadlift.

Whether they transfer over to squats or not, i don't know to be honest, but I do know that they improved my leg strength when I was too injured to either squat or deadlift, and when I came back to going heavy on both of them I was surprised at the amount of strenght there.
