    Hi guys,
    i was wondering, how heavy should a professional sportsman say a tennis player be able to leg press? Im currently 83kg and im raising 240kgs. Should i do more?

    Do a medium weight explosively, you dont need to move alot of weight but you need to move it quickly.

    so heavy weights dont matter and i should start explosive training? Ive been doing explosive training for all the other parts but not my legs as my coach thinks its important i be able to leg press heavy weights before doing any explosive training.

    If you're doing tennis you should worry about speed, stamina, and explosiveness and not how strong your legs are or how much they can leg press.

    You're a professional tennis player and you're asking on F&N what you exercise routine should be??

    Leg presses have a very little carry over to athletics.

    fuck leg presses. lunges, squats, box jumps, planks, good mornings, deadlifts with light weight is all you need. high reps, explosive quicker movements, faster heart rate exercises.

    btw, leg press isn't the best exercise to measure strength. ppl claim to leg press like 800-1200 lbs but cant even take a 315 squat below parallel
