It's base building time and alot of us are in the weight room doing leg workouts. I've been curious to see what different cyclists leg workouts are and what amount of weight & effort they do. I'm particularly interested to see the diferences between sprinters, climbers, and all arounds.
effort level: 1=easy (15 reps), 10=muscle exhaustion (2-3 reps)
I'll start it off:
I'd say I'm a sprinter...
Leg extension, 4 sets at effort = 8, upto 220lbs.
Leg curls, 4 sets at effort = 8, upto 220 lbs.
incline leg press, 45 deg., 4 sets at effort = 9, upto 830lbs.
follow by 2 sets, effort = 6, 15 reps, 470lbs.
