Declines for some reason feel more comfortable on my left shoulder... I still have slight stability and range of motion issues in it after the bankart reconstruction I had.

Nice work on the squats man.

I am curious what are the v-squats.

I am wrong in believing the leg presses are hip press.

If the hip press is the same that is sick! I can do 275-pound presses right now and can only do 3 of them.

Its close to a hack squat but honestly this machine is designed 100x better. Its somewhat close to a barbell back squat but easier on the knees and back when going really heavy.

Hey man. Lookin' good with some wicked high weights there. I'm wondering though, do you use machines over free weights by preferance? If so, how would you say the two compare?

Free weights have their purpose and it all depends on what you are doing. For something like GVT machines get the same impact and are a lot safer. I have done 10x10 back squats in the past but it is REALLY difficult to achieve the same level of training.

I use free weights almost religiously for chest, back, shoulders, and arms but legs being able to get really high weight levels without causing damage to your spine etc... can be very difficult.
