Leg presses or front squats
 
For pure muscle building, after back squats which is better: leg press or front squats?

When in doubt find a way to work them all in and see how your body responds.

I'd say leg presses. I've used them to finish off my quads many times. Because of the inherent stability of the movement you can be quite tired from squatting and still get a lot out of leg presses.

Bingo.


Well if I was a bodybuilder I'd prob go for leg press. Less stressful way to get more work done.

Then I'd deadlift :)

If youre trying to build mass I would definitely go with leg press. Front squat are an awesome movement for strength building and also mass, but after back squats youre lower back will allready be tired so leg presses will let you isolate your legs more and let you use heavier weights without putting much stress on the lower back.
