    Interesting question. IMO, comparing leg press numbers is retarded because there are so many different machines out there

    over 1300lbs for 8-10. It's especially easy if I'm a little fat at the time, that gut makes a great jump start to push your knees off your chest. lol.

    nah I don't mean exaggerated, I just mean like, it's not really a reflection of realistic leg strength, right?

    I'd say 1800lbs is a reflection of something lol But I know what you mean, there's fatass mother fuckers left and right in the gym who can leg press like a mother fucker. It's like NO SHIT you carry around 350lbs all day everyday!

    i use the nebula, same one ronnie uses when he does 2500 for 8..i have thick 45's though and cant fit the 40 it can hold. I used 34 45's and my 200lb partner..plus the sled is 100. ITs like 1830 total..I have actually fitted 38 plated plus him too but i only got 5 that was near 2k but nearly killed me.

    Ronnie had his nebula modified to hold 55 plates and he bent the fucking thing..its unreal

    I'm wondering if half of you even go full ROM meaning knees touch your chest.

    In my gym we have a very small amount of 100 pound plates that are as thin as our 45's.
