(not a dismissive tone) I hear you and will be more cautious moving forward.
I must admit, I sometimes use a bit of Old English when needed.

I'll respectfully disagree.

Ego lifting on a preacher has a higher risk of injury than many other exercises.
I've watched biceps pop TWICE on preachers.
I'll work my biceps in other ways thanks.

I don't use the preacher at all except for a plate loaded machine that I keep pretty light. It's pretty much the one movement that I'm exceedingly cautious doing.

If you could suggest a few movements/lifts or machines, what would you suggest?
Hitting legs tomorrow

Same, I use the Hammer Strength plate loaded machine. I will NEVER use a barbell on this exercise. My top set is only 60 lbs on it, but I use only the biceps, there's none of that rocking back and forth that 95% of people do.

I see clowns throwing 100+ lbs on it, but I'm not even sure what muscles they're working. 🤔

Squats: 10x135, 10x225, 5x315, 5x315 9.5rpe, backed down because I didn’t think I could do another. 5x275 very tough. Back dead. Trying to stretch back out.

Lat Pull Downs:
5x10x130 stretching out back. I was soooo tight after the squats. It took like 15 mins to get back to lifting.

Leg Press:
10x225, 10x315, 10x405, 10x495, 8x585 tougher, 7x585 legs losing strength, 6x585

Leg Extensions:
15x70, 15x90, 10x100, 10x100 upper body cramping now, 4x110, 4x110

Leg Curls:
10x90 easier than I thought, 10x110 better than expected, 8x110 tough, 3x100

Calf Raises:

You’re sore today from all those sets. It’s too much volume. That results in muscle damage and fatigue, not hypertrophy. It’s actually the opposite since your body has to divert resources to recovery instead of building muscle.

Yea, the pump is great. Yea, you’re sore. But neither are indications of muscle growth. They are indicators of fatigue.

Hypertrophy is stimulated by mechanical tension. Mechanical tension is maximum during the last 5 sets to failure. The grinding ones where the weight moves slowly because you are forced to recruit the most muscle fibers.

The extra stuff is just fluff. Being unable to sit isn’t an indicator of a “killer workout” it just indicates that you didn’t train properly.

It has nothing to do with form. Good form is good.

Dude is sore, so I was letting him know why. Fuck it. The fucking volumizers on this forum don't want to hear "Train to failure" and they'd rather walk around sore as fuck to the point that they can no longer be consistent with training.

Bbbg, okay, thanks for letting me know.

Some of that volume was because I was trying to assess where I would be establishing my intense working sets. In the future I’ll aim for more like 3x5-8 high intensity.

@CohibaRobusto are you being sarcastic? Did I overdo it?

Yes. I actually didn’t get in my last set of squats because my upper body gave out from the previous day. Today my ribs hurt.

It’s back day today, so we will see what I am able to do. Probably will do DB rows and BB rows instead of DLs as otherwise I don’t think my legs can keep up. I want to and need to do more lower back work too.

Having a back day after a leg day CAN be fine, but you have to pay attention to overlap, and both local and global fatigue builup.

Choose exercises on the second day, in this case back day, that don't hit the legs or erectors hard. So instead of BB rows, a better choice might be a chest supported row.
