Your quad-to-waist ratio is insane, these are the quads I dream of having! Solid physique all around mate, apologies if I asked this in your previous thread because I may have but is there anything particularly you did to build such quads or have they always been a genetic strongpoint?
And re the name, I also thought it was a bit creepy bit now it all makes sense![/quote]
Thanks brotha! I do not think my quads have always been a genetic strong point…but I think they are now if that makes sense. I was squatting 350 x5 slightly below parallel and while that is nothing crazy…my quads looked like crap. Yeah I did accessory work too but the main focus was squats because those always give you big legs right…not for me. Then I started reading all of the meadows articles and he did this weird thing where he would ALWAYS start with a hamstring movement…Blasphemy! How dare he! didn’t he know that squats were the most important lower body movement and every leg work out should start with the squat…but he was jacked and his routine seemed solid so I gave it a go. I used a meadows leg style routine for a long time I had variations and changed things around but I always started with intense hamstrings and really burned them out I used leg press with nice 3 second negatives and a drop set, a nasty drop set and then did some form of squat last sometimes smith close stance, sometimes free weight front squat, sometimes bb back squat. You really notice a difference in how comfortable squatting is when you start with hammies first. I had lots of days where I threw up at first. I really put alot into because I believe in the routine and the more I did it…the more results I got…recently I have struggled to bring up my upper body but am pretty proud of the progress I made.[/quote]
I, like most others on here, have also switched to mountain dog style training and I know exactly what you mean about squats being sooo much more comfortable when hamstrings are full of blood. I’ve also seen improvements from this but not quite to your standard… Yet
Keep up the good work, all the best for the contest.
