Also like this wee honey here, universal leg press. Probably where Gary Jones got the idea for his hammer strength seated leg press.

This one is also nice…neck supported.

Nice pressing. I’ve never used an axle bar but would love to try it. Told Cousin Mike to get one and he said, “Dons acceptés”, Donations accepted.

2 Likes

Thanks bud:) Yeah i perfer the axle bar for pressing, feels much easier on the wrists and theres little to no rotation…and given i press with a thumbless grip thats important. I find a lot of Olympic bars now have too much rotation.
Ha…cousin Mike holds the purse strings tightly lol.
