    This of course would vary greatly depending on the design, but I remember reading on one of the leg presses i've read that the sled weight was 80lbs.

    I have no idea. Probably because I never leg press.

    The amount of weight doesn't even matter. You almost surely are not actually lifting as much as you put on it because of the angles and what not involved.

    So, in short, don't worry about the amount of weight you are leg pressing. If you use it as an accessory not the "pounds" only so you can keep track of how much you are doing from day to day, week to week, month to month, etc, RE: Progressive overload.

    I just wanted to know..Hence, the curious question. I have a workout log and I want to track progress accurately. So if you know a answer, it would applicable here sir! Thanks

    Just track plates you put on. The weight is irrelevant if you keep adding plates. It's a mess of a math problem to try to figure out weight you are actually lifting.

    It varies, but when people ask you how much you leg press, you tell them the plates amount, not the pounds. Ex: I can press 5; 45's and a quarter. (thats 5 each side, not 10 total.)

    star trac makes the machine at my gym and I actually emailed them to ask that question and they told me on most angled leg press machines the sled weighs around 100lbs.

    ^^Exactly. Weight in pounds does not matter on the leg press. Only number of plates...just make sure you're progressing and you'll be fine.

    Nope, its not a mess at alllll. Just take the Sine of the angle your pressing multiplied by the weight your using. That'll get you a "Y" value of vertical weight moved, like in a squat. For instance, if the sled is at a 45 degree angle to the earth(gravity), and your loaded up with 500lbs, it would be 500SIN(45)=353.5lb . Thats not to say you could go squat that though because the other muscles involved in a squat, that you havent developed by doing squats, may not be strong enough.

    Except for the one or two guys that actually gave an answer, these are the worst responses I've ever seen. He didn't ask for a thesis on the mechanics of training.

    I'm going back to the 90's and remember the machine's at Gold's and being told that those sled's were 45. I, like you would be curious, though. You'd think the companies would make them at a fairly standard sled weight (sort of like the smith machine is about 30lbs off)....I wish I could help you, and would like to know myself!

    For people like me who come to read this article and looking for a straight legitimate answer. Thanks for the thread. I have always used the leg press machines (not the free weights) until yesterday, and was curious how to track my weight progress. I know now not to worry about the sled and just track the weight I add on. Thanks.
