My leg strength is pathetic, I have no excuses. I’m reasonably happy with my bench (275lb 1rm) and my deadlift (375lb 1rm) but my front squat (198lb 1rm) and back squat (287lb 1rm) are incredibly weak.
It is my goal to significantly increase my leg strength over the next 7/8 months, and I was just looking for advice on how to go about doing this. I’d rather achieve this following an intensive squatting routine rather than a more gradual approach such as 5/3/1. This is my number one priority, I’m really not fussed about putting my other lifts on the backburner, I feel it’s time I really kick-started my leg training.
I’ve researched smolov, broz and sheiko routines and I was just wondering which one (or which other routine) you’d recommend? If possible I’d really really prefer to have front squats as my main lift as opposed to back squats - despite really focusing on technique front squatting just seems so much more natural to me and I get depth a lot more easily. But having searched the forum a lot I’ve found a lot of posters are against doing front squats in smolov for example.
Thank you in advance.
