Hi I started on a car forums, but realized that I should come to the correct forum if I wanted some advice on weight training.
I train at home with free weights. My bench has an upper and lower pulley so I find that I can do most muscles groups quite well.......except legs.
I don't have the courage to take my squats to failure, and my leg extension works but doesn't quite cut it.
Anyways, the other day I asked if anyone had plans for a incline leg press machine? pretty tall request, right? Well, all I got was a dozen people telling me not to do it, that it was too dangerous, too complicated, too expensive...."don't waste your time"
Hmmm.....is that what society has come to? are we too stupid to make our own equipment? are we fools with lots of money to spend on expensive equipment because we don't want to find a cheaper solution?
Sorry, guys. The other day on the car forum someone was complaining about $6500 worth of repairs to his 5 year old car....I'm just have to draw a comparison here. I've never spent $6500 on repairs since I started driving 25 years ago. Obviously, there are too many people that pay $1200 for a brake job instead of doing it themselves for $60.
sorry about the rant....back to the topic at hand.
Is there anyone out there that has plans from a homemade leg press machine?
