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?
