And then what? We have a PL coach at my gym who squats 611 and has much smaller legs than me with my measly 4 plate 1rm.[/quote]
I’ve never seen someone squat 6 plates with a flat ass. Is this thread called Leg hypertrophy?[/quote]
Right, as if there aren’t other ways for the OP to develop his glutes BEFORE he hits his 600lb squat. It’s always one of those responses that just makes me think “cool story bro.” If OP knew how to get his squat to 600lb he wouldn’t have started this thread. Obviously he needs a more realistic response.
And yea, my glutes are bigger than his too. Sorry I didn’t specify that I include glutes as part of my “legs.” Sorry if that was unclear. [/quote]
I believe the point was just squat more and your ass will get bigger.[/quote]
Right, I got the point, but I don’t think it’s the whole picture. As deltone one pointed out, his ass is big squatting 500 for REPS. Plenty of “small” guys hit 600 squats for 1 rep, but to get the big arse you can’t be afraid of a little volume. I guess that’s my point.
Moreover, rampantbadger’s OP had NOTHING to do with the OP of the thread. He asked a specific question about a specific exercise…and it’s not like it’s a retarded exercise. It’s great at developing control and power through hip extension and developing the posterior chain…all things that help improve deadlifts and squats.
