If your putting the same effort into Legs as you put into everything else you’re not at fault.


#15

are you trying to compete in anything, or do you just lift for fun? what are your goals?


#16

Yeah I want to compete I have made a topic on pharma stating that I would want to start using steriods


#17

What does your leg day look like?


#18

COMPETE IN WHAT?

You called yourself a power builder. There is no such thing as a powerbuilder competition.


#19

Warm up 4 sets of 20 light weight on seated leg extension
4 sets of 20 on lying leg curls light weight used
6 sets back squat going heavy every set and if i’m feeling good I’d go to 1 rep max
6 leg press heavy weight each set
8 sets of seated calves


#20

Lol I know I’m competing In both powerlifting and bodybuilding and I did have 2nd place on national championship of powerlifting but my placings on bodybuilding competitions is not that good that’s why I’m thinking of starting my first cycle of steriod.


#21

You’ve got a great base to work with. You won’t get anywhere in bodybuilding with those legs tho. Whatever you’ve been doing is not working and needs change; possibly a 2nd day of leg work each week to add more volume… also you may need to vary your rep ranges. Not sure if you’ve primarily only been hitting heavy weight / low reps


#22

You’re saying that I should ditch heavy weights and start doing 15-20 rep range all sets?
