    I lock them because I feel it targets my quads better and the last thing I need at this point is a biiger ass or hammies

    I lock out for a few breaths towards the end of sets when it starts getting hard, but I don't lock out each rep

    don't lock out, just come close. if i actually lock out the desire to just hold locked out increases tremendously

    I don't lockout. I've seen people that do and it doesn't look like the best for joints.

    OT a bit, what % of your squat do you leg press? 2x (so 200 squat = 400 leg press)?
