new one for me:



I mean this as absolutely no offence to the younger guys on here, but to hear you say that you've never seen this type of leg press really puts into prospective just how long I've been training (since 12 years old and a total of 32years). As far as I'm concerned that was one of the best leg machines around........God the memories Cry..........all good memories!!

We had one of these when I was training at Bill Pearls gym in Pasadena in the mid to late 70's. With that machine there was virtually no way to cheat, it was all legs or you got buried, no way to bail out if you got stuck......awesome machine!!

Yes I too loved this machine.  At the original World Gym it was great.  No back problems and you could really concentrate on your legs without having to worry about bad form going down or hurting your back.  And when you were done with a set you just lay there till your next.

It's called the vertical leg press machine. You donít know about it because they don't carry it in most gyms any more. I bought one of those machines two weeks ago, and love it. Makes you quads really bulge out and it's great for space if you donít have any. I bought the Yukon version, that's the best I found. It supports your head and lower back. This is the one I bought.

Used one in the 70s, nothing special. For leg press the Universal seated leg press was and still is great and used leverage way ahead of machine now out on the market. The thigh burn was brutal.

it looks humbling; doesn't look like you can handle a lot of weight.

The Universal bench and military press are some of the best machine presses around, I miss those 4 sided universal stations.

Some of the early muscle beach guys from Venice died fairly recently around the same time, including Joe Gold and Harold Zinkin, inventor of the Universal Gym. First multi-station gym developed surprisingly early, at the start of the 60s. They both knew Jack Lalanne.

Zinkin obit:

Arnold only trained legs on the vertical leg press for the 1980 Mr. O-and only used 400# for reps.......

why would you say this?

and with such certainty?

The image came from the BOOK Pumping Iron (1974)

Here is a crazy leg press


That's Wilbur Miller, who held the world record in the deadlift during the early 60's. The barbell leg press was actually the most popular leg exercise at one time.

I hope no one's taking that pic seriously; very unlikely that it's real-far too dangerous not to mention mindless.

To even get close to making sense there'd be two or more spotters paying close attention, but even then...

I loved the Vert.  So comformtable.  I always imagined if I got under a car I could lift it.  They were big back in the 70's and early 80's

Can we do calf raises on a vertical leg press ?

I never got the same pump or burn doing vertical presses, with the blood running down out of the legs while exercising.

Chris Cormier recently injured his back on the vertical leg press, bad enough to be hospitalized, so it is dangerous. 45 degree press is much safer.
