I did my first lower body weight training for my third stint as a Planet Fitness member.   For my compund lower body movement I did the plate loaded leg press sled which evidently is much tougher than the pivot type leg press they had at Retro.  I started seeing stars with only 5 plates on each side, something that used to take six plates per side to happen with the other press.  Other than that things went fine.  I have noticed the three smith machines, that are my only half decent option for barbell chest pushing movements are almost always in use, something that could get quite annoying down the road and a byproduct of the chain stupidly pulling the few conventional barbell benches they had remaining.
