Leg Press to Squat Conversion Formula To convert the Squats to Leg presses, we will be using the below-mentioned metrics: A = the angle of the leg press SF = the force of the squat LF = the force of the leg press BW = the weight of the person To find the SF, we will be using a trigonometric equation to solve this equation:  Sin(A) = SF/LF, or in other wo...
