    In the following video you can watch Ronny Coleman leg press 2300 lbs.

    Thats amazing. Though I wonder if he is taking any "performance enhancers" :rolleyes:
    Doing that much weight can't be too good for your knees.

    Well, not just your knees, but your back as well. Totally nuts. I wonder how high he can jump :D

    It looks like it to me.
    Though I always thought that the real way to do a leg press was to bring your knees down to your chest but in this case his knees would probablly explode if he did that.

    Besides the knees and back, it also puts pressure on the abdominal muscles and contents. It is also putting stress on the heart. Proper training and preparation is key. It is also important to wear knee protection and protection for the abdomen which will help the back.

    The link isn't working for me, it goes to private.

    Yes, I have Windows Media Player in my Applications folder. It has automatically come up in the past when needed.

    Yes, preparation, plus metal to replace his spine and other bones to make that possible. :eek:

    although those weights might not weigh as much as they are purported to in the video

    Probably can't jump very high (upper body bulk + slow twitch muscle fibers from weight lifting = low vertical). Impressive, though.

    Most I ever did while rowing was around 800.

    They really should use Quicktime. Ok, I'll go install this Media Player. I bet the video has the fuzzies.

    I don't disagree with you about the upper body bulk but I think the weight lifting and doing a lot of weight for a few reps would give him explosive jumping power. On my track team we used to do leg press all the time and I was a high jumper.

    I thought a little weight and high reps gave you endurance and slow twitch muscle and heavy weight and low reps gave you fast twitch fibers while sacrificing strength for endurance.

    I did a metric ton just last week. Bench press though. None of this wussy leg stuff. (j/k)

    Sure, weight lifting helps somewhat, but plyometrics are better - at least from what I've heard.

    Heavy weight and low reps does help with building leg strength, but it also leads to more bulk.
