Everybody knows that since the dawn of time that squats and deadlift are the staples of any good training program and yes many folks have built great legs using these movement but do they work for you?
i have started this thread simply becuase as you can see I'm beginning to question these exercises. Currently like many I'm doing 5/3/1 I squat regularly usually 2x a week front and back 5x10-12 ramping up the weight each set.
with deadlifts the voulme currently is alot lower I basically do the 3 heavy sets and thats it. I have been doing it like this for the last 3 months but before that i did more volume until my back start playing up.
currently my thighs are about 26" they have been like that for i would say a good year+. some how my calves have gained 2" and i never ever work them directly. my glutes are bigger too.
I have gained 30 pounds this year none of it has make to my quads or hams.
I haven't been training legs all my training carrer but for the last 4yrs I have put alot of work in.
so am I alone here ?
