Was told about an exercise i hadnt seen before for the hammies. Using the Leg Press, you put your feet up higher on the press. Anyone does these before? Did you like them? Effective?
Im already doing thigns like leg curls and GM’s (and have done previously step ups and lunges also).
Id like to add these in if they are considered a good alternative.
I’m not too sure about these, but I’d say if you’re already doing GM’s and lunges then you should be ok. If you want good alternative exercises for legs and hams vary your GM or lunge. I like zercher GM’s for getting low and really stretching the hams. Look at Mike Robertson’s article on single leg exercises. romanian DL’s he RX’s are great hammy developers. so good. have fun.
cheers, i might give those zercher GM’s a try…how is the weight differential for regular GM’s vs zerchers??
also, I might change the leg extensions with that alternative squat mentioned above.
As far as weight I can do way more with zerchers because of the lack of possible strain on the spine. It also depends on the toughness of your elbows. but all in all I get more weight out of zerchers because of the safety factor.
thanks mate, i found robo’s article and will have a look thru that and add some of that in.
i tried the high leg presses but didnt like the short ROM so i did RDLs instead…good move
