    Hi guys!

    My question is related with the nerdy staff. Recently Mike Isratel posted a video doing leg press with all the weights on the upper bar of the machine. He said that he does it like that because it enhances force transduction to the quads.

    I guess I can see it, but actually I’m not so sure of the rationale behind it. What do you think?

    Thank you so much!

    Considering transduction is a process that involves transferring DNA into cells…I’d assume he was making a joke. Although I haven’t watched the video. But I’ve never seen a plate loaded “sled” leg press with multiple loading pegs, where weight placement makes any difference on load transfer to the platform
