I have "acquired" a gym membership attached to my wife's. Rather dull but its there. Mostly weights machines plus a few free weights which I avoid, mostly because my elbows are screwed and picking them up hurts :roll:
What sort of weights and reps are worth trying with a leg extension and a leg press machine.
I can happily do 20 reps at a weight where the last 5 are murder yet sticking the next weight on is barely moveable.
Don't want to leave my legs quacking all day as it messes up the riding latter.
Missing cartilage in both knees makes carrying heavy weights bad news but the machines don't seem to do that.
