Powerline Leg Press Review
This item was bought as an addition to another Body Solid home gym machine I already own. I needed an apparatus that worked my legs and would fit into the limited space of my home's downstairs. Since receiving the leg press, I have used the item for about a month, and I am completely satisfied with it. First of all, it was easy to put together. Like the my other Body Solid Home Gym, there were no written instruction on how to put the leg press together - only diagrams. But these were sufficient to get the job done. It's very easy to assume a prone squat position under the weight bar, as well as very comfortable. Placement of my feet on the foot plate above was easily accomplished and keeps my feet in a secure and comfortable position during my leg press. There are three adjustable support pin holes on each of the vertical weight support tubes, that allow a lifter to initially mount the machine in a quarter squat position, according to their height and leg length. These pins are easily removed during exercise, so that the lifter can go through any range of motion they want. I am a shorter lifter (5' 8) and have no trouble starting at a quarter squat position, extending my legs before I begin a set, removing the pins, and going to a 3/4 squat position. In my opinion, a taller lifter would have no problems, since I am using the lowest support pin hole position and there are two more positions above the ones I use. Replacing the pins after a set of leg presses is easy, although I could imagine it being slightly difficult if the lifter was performing maximum repetitions (making sure the pins are set horizontally through the hole when fatigued). Without weights on the bar, this leg press machine was a bit squeaky. But the addition of weight, quieted the machine. To end this review, I am very satisfied and happy with my purchase.

F'ing awesome
Works great, easy to assemble and very effective. Works the legs and glutes better than the sleds at commercial gyms. I highly recommend this for any home gym. I get a better workout with 300 lbs on this thing than I did at the gym with 700+ on the sled. I think it's the position that does it. Buy it.

Great piece of equipment!
I have heard that the squat is the king of all exercises. Due to a chronic bad back I could never perform them properly. The powerline solves this problem extremely well. Make that painfully well. Your legs will hate you in the morning. The powerline is very easy to assemble and built with quality materials. Highly recommend!! Official Amazon review of Powerline PVLP156X Vertical Leg Press.

Vertical review
I would recommed the vertical leg press machine for any one who has some kind of a lower back problem and cannot do any kind of sqats. Instead of having a barbell across your shoulders, stack with 3 or 4 plates on each side, you can do the same kind of weight or even twice as much on the vertical leg press without putting your lower back under tramendous amout of preasure.

I use this leg press every day for a good, solid, safe workout.
I use this leg press every day and, for the money, it suits me just fine. I do not intend to lift extremely heavy loads and will stick mainly to higher repetion loads. For instance, 300 pounds seems to be a reasonable limit for me because beyond that the thing may become a bit wobbly, so I try to keep it in the 200 pound range and go for twenty or thirty repetitions instead of loading it up and grunting out heavier loads. Like I said, 300 pounds seems like a fair amount of weight. If you need to go heavier then you will want to consider heavier equipment. First, the thing squeaks loudly, but that can be easily remedied by applying some axle grease to the sliding bars. Second, I bolted a wooden 2x6 board the width of the unit to the existing foot plate so I could do wider stance presses. The footplate that it comes with is rather short and I simply wanted more variety in my foot placement options. Third, be aware that you will need to keep the stopper pins in your hands throughout the exercise repetions since you will need them to stop the descent once you are finished. If you don't have them handy and you tire out, be prepared to get squeezed into a tight little ball if you get stuck. It won't come all the way down on you, but it might make for an interesting exit if you have any size to you. Just be sure to keep the pins handy and practice a bit with them before starting out with heavy weights. Fourth, I took off the head rest it comes with as it was useless unless you fit perfectly, about 6'3 should do, but not so well for me at about 5'10. Otherwise, it tends to press and push the neck forward at a potentially painful angle. Don't even bother attaching it and just use a couple pillows instead. Finally, I bought some olympic plate adapter sleeves so I could use my olympic style plates. It just looks cooler with those big honking plates.
