Mobster's Wrist Roller Work


Recommended Posts

Question, since I am a relative newbie:  when you are doing a 700kg leg press, I am assuming that is a machine.  I didn't know they went that high, but also, what range of motion are you pressing?  Clearly you are at the top of the strength ladder, but that 700kg just struck me as humanly impossible, if it is what I thought it was, even if you were the best in the world at it -- because wouldn't that translate to a deadlift of something like 1500 pounds (which I am pretty sure no human ever did or could do)?  Or is the reason no one deadlifts over 1000 or so simply all grip?  I can't imagine legs that strong, but hey, maybe.  It's just an innocent, honest question because I am not all that familiar with serious lifting and I thought 700 kg was a typo at first but then I kept seeing it over and over and had to ask.  

Thanks and happy holidays, keep up the good work.  -- Vin

Saturday I got the call that my new (used) Leg Extension machine was on its way so having humped it in with 3 other guys to the foyer I spent a LOT of time and energy getting it into the home gym. S

Friday Benched today as we did (mainly her) a zip wire thing yesterday.  Close Grip Bench Press to 140-kilos x 1 and then 3 x 3 reps Mid-Iso Row to 80-kilos a side x 6 reps @ Roll

Won.

Hi Vin. It's nothing. Check out Ronnie Coleman on TY doing 2250lbs. On the 700kg (I've done reps with 765 and 3 reps with 850) it's a short range of motion. On the other sets I try to keep the range honest. As for what it translates to - best guess others have come up with is a squat of about 1/3 what you leg press. As for machine - yes of course. No one uses much over 500lbs on the old school method.

Thanks, that "nothing" is pretty impressive.  I've had back surgery so I have a decent excuse to avoid that arena and stick with grippers lol.  Be well.

The hell that is leg day... made more hellish ha ha. We (Paul back in) decided to go again on the SSB/Hatfield squats.

SSB/Hatfield squats
to 5 plates a side / 240kg - 528lbs x 6 reps (including the last one where I sat down 100% on the bench - much harder to stand up from). I also had a go at a walk out with 7 plates / 300-kilos or 660lbs. This made me think I MIGHT do a  rep but I'd be in trouble raking it back after.

Leg Press
to 300-kilos x 21 reps... tiny bit brutal

Seated Leg Curls
to stack x 25 reps

s/s with

Leg Extensions
to stack x 20 reps

Bwt: 302lbs
