Leg press

For the longest time I am doing the leg press with both legs at the same time with heavy weight. Yesterday for the first time I used just one leg at a time of course with lighter weight.
Omg, my butt is super sore today. Had no idea there is such a major difference. It feels like I worked different butt muscles 😀! Try it out!

    Depending on the type of press setup, it isn't as straightforward as having the weight to have half the actual resistance. You might have done a heavier set than you meant to... I believe glutes are activated as overload happens to the quads in squats, so this might be similar on the leg press.

    Sounds like a good plan
