I’m gonna get back on the bodybuilding thread, but for now ill post some stuff here if people are interested!
sorry if this is very unorganized!
I did a fair amount of high bar squatting to build my leg base, in my past offseasons id do the 6 day big beyond belief program and high bar squat twice a week one day in the 8-10 rep range and one day in the 13-15 rep range!
this worked pretty well, however ive moved completely away from barbell squats lately, im just never happy with my form and i end up “grinding” way too many reps , and feel the movement more in my entire body and less in the quads/glutes. So ive switched completely to hack squats lately-two variations, close stance and reverse stance . Close stance is for quad sweep (VL) and reverse stance hits more glutes/adductors
Hammies! very much meadows style- primary focus is on leg curls, with drop sets, partials, high volume etc
ive also gone through many phases of just doing purely mountain dog style training for legs, so anything you can find written by meadows ive done, except for stuff with bands!
as far as getting them freaky as all get out, youve got to diet for a long ass time, for me i have to take out all cardio at the end and way reduce my leg volume and intensity to get them to be very seperated. My legs just get SOOO pumped/inflamed from doing cardio and leg training twice a week (thats a big one as well , 2x a week for leg training seems to be optimal for me) i have to reallllly back off at the end of the prep to get them separated
