      I haven't followed the sport of tennis 🎾 closely in recent years. I know about some of the female players but next to nothing about the current male tennis stars. I'm currently watching a match between two American professionals, Brandon Nakashima and John Isner.  I noticed that Isner is much taller than Nakashima. Nakashima is 6ft 2 in. I was surprised to learn that Isner is 6ft 10 in and shocked to find that he's only the third tallest pro on tour. In 2010 he had the longest professional tennis match in history which lasted 11 hours and 5 minutes (5 sets and 183 games) which was played over 3 days!  He has the highest "official" ATP serve on record at 157.2 mph/253 km/hr and the 3rd fastest serve in history.  He currently has the second most number of aces in the history of the ATP tour.  He's currently ranked 20th.  He's 37 years of age and his listed weight is 111 kg/244 lbs. The match I'm watching just concluded and Isner lost to Nakashima who is 20 years of age.  Nakashima's highest ranking was 62 but with this win he'll rank higher. Source: Wikipedia

      Yes Liam, that leg press did not have a great range of motion. Chris Hoy did below parallel squats and peaked at 240KG after his competitive days. He had 27 inch thighs at a bodyweight on or about 200 pounds at one time.

      The UK Track cyclist??? usually they have humongous legs track cyclists and speed skaters have the best quads in sport IMO weightlifters are “up there “ also A short range leg press comes close to the very limited range of motion of a peddle stroke  but IMO a true leg press involves a full range press  You lower until knees are under your chin heels would be about a foot from your backside A 1/8 leg press just doesnt impress irrespective of the weight every gym in the  world has at least one dick wad who uses 1000 lbs in this lift Without exception they all have  match stick legs hypertrophy isnt the friend of partial movements unless it seems where  these movements are performed 1000s of times eg a track bike race Liam
