I finally was able to tackle trying to push twice my body weight at the leg press machine tonight with was one of the records that I have set for myself. Next record to break for my leg press is 3 times body weight.

Added hips to the routine considering that my lower body seems to be developing nicely according to my PT. Both hip exercises will take a while to get used to not only because it’s a muscle group I hardly work but also the machines puts you in a position that someone like me can be a wee bit self conscious to be seen in. Lets just say that I have not had my legs that wide apart ever in my life.

Thanks .. it was really mind over matter in that case. Never thought that I would be able to do it until I actually tried it.
