On the legpress I can get sets of 10 out on at least 250 pounds (115 kg). On a leg extension machine (pushing up with your ankles, working the quads etc. I think I’m at around 110 pounds (50kg).

men have greater upper body capacity, women have stronger legs (pound for pound). generally. something to do with the center of gravity, and larger pelvis/hips. women are also usually heavier below the waistline than above.

How many reps though? My SO’s one rep is way higher then mine, but my 8 and 10 reps is higher then his.

For years now…I’ve always had good general strength when it came to doing weights anyway but lately I have stepped it up through the fitness programs I’ve been doing. I’m on a weights program at the moment which has been really good for building more muscle and toning. Doesn’t make you bulk up like some women think it will – I have gotten more leaner!

I was a competitive figure skater up until college. The most I could do was about 300 on a leg press, but I’d imagine I could only do 150-200 now because the muscles haven’t been used for explosive jumping in about 5 years. I’m also a bit freaked out by the leg press now because I want to protect my knees!

When I’m doing a leg day at the gym I do 3 sets of 8×350 lbs. I could lift more in one rep, but I’ve never pushed myself to the max on leg press because I don’t want to hurt myself. I’m 5’8 and 165 lbs, not a small girl, and I have massive thighs. It drives my brother crazy because he’s a far more serious athlete but he struggles to match me in leg strength. He’s the one who got me to this point, he develops my workout routines, but my legs are stronger. And they’re stronger than my FIs too. Both of them can crush me in upper body strength though, I have weak little arms, lol.

With the leg press, around 250.  With the leg extensions, for some reason it’s a bit more challenging..like 115ish.

@luckyshot:  Same with me? My legs are like, SO strong.  But my arms? Forget about it. smh  Really weak.lol

But I think that is my fault. I am a bit biased when I work out.  I ‘naturally’ have toned thin arms and I rarely work them out especially since I don’t really want to look too strong up top.  But, I always wanted to have big legs/thighs. Ha.

I haven’t done the leg press since March, but I was pushing 140kgx16. (308lb)

I’m doing 80kgx5 (176lb) for squats (although heading up to 82.5kg (181.5lb) on Saturday). I think my 1RM is probably approaching 100kg (220lb).

My deadlifts are only 80-82.5kg for reps, but my 1RM is around 90kg.

I’m not really a big fan of machines though. I don’t do leg extensions (or leg press any more). I’m all about the barbells!

@candy11:  if i’m doing the horizontal leg press (shoulders higher than knees) i can push around 200 (dead lift, i can’t do more than a few reps at that weight). if it’s the overhead leg press, i can do a few reps at maybe 140. squatting, i can push around 140.
