Lower Body

I. Front Squats
--A.8 x 145lbs
--B.8 x 155lbs
--C.6 x 165lbs
--D.5 x 165lbs

II. Leg Press
--A.6 x 270lbs
--B.8 x 230lbs
--C.8 x 230lbs
--D.8 x 240lbs

III. Weighted Crunches
--A.12 x 35lbs
--B.10 x 40lbs
--C.10 x 45lbs
--D.9 x 45lbs

Comments: Legs were cramping during front squats...it affected my performance. Next time I'll warm up on a bike before doing legs. I wanted a more powerful secondary to my front squats, something that would make me really feel my legs bulging, like the squats do for me, so I decided on the leg press. Had to find a comfortable spot, so I lowered the weight after the first set.

Is front squats + leg press overkill? I know they are essentially the same exercise but one lacks the core stability, but aren't all leg exercises besides curls/extentions pretty much the same movements?

Lower Body

I. Front Squats
--A.8 x 145lbs
--B.8 x 155lbs
--C.6 x 165lbs
--D.5 x 165lbs

II. Leg Press (only counting plates added. Is there added weight like a barbell has that you calculate?
--A.6 x 270lbs
--B.8 x 230lbs
--C.8 x 230lbs
--D.8 x 240lbs

III. Weighted Crunches
--A.12 x 35lbs
--B.10 x 40lbs
--C.10 x 45lbs
--D.9 x 45lbs

Comments: Legs were cramping duing squats - I'll warm up beforehand next time. Wanted a bigger leg exercise after squats, so I decided to try the leg press, which I enjoyed. I know that the leg press is just like squats w/o the core stability needed; is it alright to do squats then leg press?

Maybe your getting heavier so reps are harder now than they were before?

I have gotten heavier, I'm between 162lbs - 164lbs, but that isn't too much heavier...

For now on I'm going to keep the same grip/ grip width for every workout.
