leg press different machines


As far as I've seen there are two popular designs of leg press machines a sled on an incline and a hinged version (with the hinge near the floor) does anyone have any idea how much wieght on one correlates to the other.

I can push more on the sled then I can on one of the hinged floor ones but I don't really know a % decrease because I don't do the hinged ones anymore. It will be different for every individual person anyway.

I use the incline leg press. Along with squats and hack squats for my quads. I currently push up 540 lbs this way. Next week most likely I'll add more weight though it seemed light this time around...
