Default The Best Leg Press!! - 09-07-2011, 10:20 AM

This leg press is built by Nebula. Look at the huge foot plate. This thing can hold some serious poundages. In our old gym we used to load the whole machine up and stick a barbell in there and load that thing with some plates. Miss this machine, although I like Hammer Strength's leg press, this one is the best out there.

That's the same one I use. It can only get up to 1260 or 1350 on the bars but you can throw db's or people up there on it if ya have to.

one thing about this Nebula that after looking at the pics made me question it, is that it's not a 45 degree press. It's a 35 degree. Now in bodybuilding terms, who gives a shit, but comparing leg press plates vs a 45 degree...not the same same.

There is a big difference in 10 degrees. I will say that. but as long as a person gets a good workout on it...... who cares right.

Yeah...I'm not saying there's a problem with it. But when people claim (beating their chest) on how many plates they use, it would be helpful to know the degree.

You can figure how much is actually pushed (after doing a little research) by calculating the following:

Take the appropriate sine and multiply it by the weight you have loaded:

sine(35 degrees) = 0.573576436

sine(45 degrees) = 0.707106781


1000 lbs on 45 degree LP - 1000 x .707 = 707 lbs

1000 lbs on 35 degree LP - 1000 x .574 = 574 lbs

Big difference! Just for an FYI

Yea there is a big diff, my fav leg press is the shitty old vertical one they had at my old gym.

Btw. I didn't see anyone even say how much wt they used....let alone beat their chest. ;-)
