Hey Guys, i was wondering if anybody could help me. Whenever i leg press, my quads are on fire, get a massive pump, and grow, but my joints suffer for it, ecspecially my hips and ankles. I hit a strip set today of 600x20,500x10,400x15,300x20,200x20,90x20(approximation of the weights being used, I really dont want to do the math) and my quads were on fire and pumped, but my hips felt horrible, and so did my ankles.
I have yet to find a better quad excercise for hypertrophy(even squats dont compare for quad hypertrophy at least for me) where I can push myself this hard and make excellent quad gains. Anybody have any suggestions for alternatives to the leg press?
