So I know everybody says leg presses isn’t squatting, obviously, and it doesn’t transfer well. So heres my situation. My max was 365 squatting, I could handle 315 for maybe 3 times or so. Pretty much everything over 275 was uncomfortable. I had never leg pressed over 700 pounds. My last leg day, I did my squats, my box squats and decide to hit leg press instead of hack squats for a change up, I hit 800 for 5, moved up to 900, felt 1000 and still got 3, 1100 for a painful 2 reps. I squatted light the next day, 315 for 1, 225 for 10. Then this morning, I was doing my squats, went up to 365 and I felt really good and comfortable. So I went up to 375, and up to 385, still feeling like I could handle more but I didn’t wanna push my luck, I did my back off set at 315, only expecting maybe 3-4, but I got 8. a good solid 8. Out of nowhere.
Maybe: Leg Press over a certain weight to the point that its actually strenuous will transfer fairly well for strength.
