Legend Fitness 3122 Plate Loaded 45 Degree Leg Press - Whether you’re a bodybuilder, powerlifter or professional athlete, the angled leg press is one of the most important training tools there is when it comes to building explosive power, mass and overall development in the lower body. A leg press provides a powerful leg training alternative to squats that allows you to mix up your training to insure consistent gains. For those with lower back injuries, such as herniated discs, a leg press can become a barbell squat replacement that still allows the user to perform mass building exercises if proper precautions are taken. Walk into any school weight room, professional sports team gym or military fitness facility and you’d be hard pressed to find any of these locations that does not have a leg press of some sort whether that be a plate loaded leg press or a selectorized leg press with weight stack.
Why choose the Legend 3122 leg press? The Legend 3122 is a “smooth operator” featuring an 85 lb. footplate carriage that travels at a 45 degree angle utilizing commercial linear bearings and steel alloy guide rods that are case hardened for years of high performance. The large polished aluminum footplate is made from heavy polished aluminum with a diamond plate pattern that offers years of sure footing. Getting in and out of the 3122 is made easy with the integrated footplate handles. The back pad can be adjusted via a pop-pin allowing for a 38° 33°and 28° angle for increased user comfort during the heaviest lifts. Heavy lifters will be able to pile the plates high and deep with the 15” long weight sleeves. Still need more room for plates? We can add a third 15” sleeve in the center for a small upcharge! And last but not least is the construction of the Legend linear leg press. At a shipped weight of 620 lbs. most of that comes from USA Made and Fabricated 11 gauge structural steel in both 3” x 3” and 4” x 2” sizes.
What is the actual amount of force generated on a 45 degree leg press? Ever load up the leg press and think to yourself, “I wonder how much weight this actually is.”? As you can imagine, both the angle of the leg press and the absence of hoisting your own body weight, as when performing a squat,
allows the lifter to pack a lot of 45 lb. plates on the leg press. If you add ten 45’s to each side (20 total) does this mean you’re actually lifting 900 lbs.? Yes and no. Technically yes you are lifting that much weight but you have to take into account that the leg press carriage is not sliding up and down at a 90 degree angle but rather at a 45 degree angle. This angle reduces the actual amount of force having to be applied to lift these plates. So how do you figure out the actual amount of force? Lets take our 900 lb. example above. Multiply the amount of weight added (900 lbs.) x 0.707 (71% of force based on a 45° angle) and you get 636.3 lbs. Still, you’ll find this amount of weight to be quite a bit more than your squat. But what happens when you figure in your bodyweight? Say you weigh 200 lbs. and you subtract 200 lbs. from your actual 636.3 lbs. which now equals 436.3 lbs. Now the difference in actual applied force between the leg press and the barbell squat probably makes a bit more sense!
