Please don’t blame me for coming up with this. Lisa Monaco originally posted this to her Facebook page. My wife forwarded this to me because she found it to be funny. So, did I. I have no further comment. What about you?
The incline leg press is my favorite. It works the biggest muscles we have, namely the quadriceps and hamstring muscles, and the recovery, growth and maintenance of these large muscles helps to burn fat cells more efficiently and for several days. The count is 12 plates x45 lbs. per plate loaded on the Incline Leg Press. Add the weight of the 130 lbs. platform, and this equals 670 lbs total. This is the most I would attempt for now after doing the first 3 lighter sets of 12, 10 and 8 reps per set.
This is how it’s done on the 4th set of at least 6 reps at 590 lbs, before reducing the weight in half to finish the 2 remaining “burn-out” sets of 12 reps each. Sorry, I couldn’t step back to take the picture. I was holding half-way into the first rep while taking this photo. See the next post above.
