Well, I was busting out another leg day with less than 50g or carbs in me and over half a cc of clen. It went pretty smooth. 225 on the front squat for a pansy, baby bitch, carb depleted poon 5 reps. I did two more but they were college boy reps so I didn’t count them. Leg press, lunges, hacks and finally some good old leg extensions to flash fry the bad boys. 4x20 and barely moving 50lbs on the stack.
So there I was torturing the shit out of myself when these two momos, sorry I’ve been reading alot of my old MDs as of late, ask me if they can work in. I noticed that they were attempting to do leg day as well. IMO a leg day without a squat ain’t a leg day in my book. So I oblige an the first billy badass scoffs at my weight and sets the pin at 180lbs.
He does full body leg extensions, grunting like a dying rhino with constipation. He does his 10 or so reps and the other momo does the same performance. At the completion of every set they slam the stack to prove how bad ass they are. On it went for 3x10 they worked up to the whole stack. Then came the half ass posing routine. A distored side tricep, followed by a chicken leg version of an ab and quad.
After that Victor and Jay go on to ask me why I don’t go heavier. I try to explain that I don’t consider the leg extension a quad builder and that I merely use them as a warm up and as a finisher. To that they scoff and make the point that the squat is overrated and that using the leg press is better. Blah blah blah. “I’ve gotten awesome results from the leg extensions,” homey tells me sporting probably 18’ wheels. At best!
I finish my set and can barely walk. Mine are close to 25 and I’m completely depleted and weighing barely 210. I simply say, “alright” and turn my Disturbed back on. I knew I was just wasting my time. Alright, sorry for the length by I had to write out this tale full of ingnorance and badasses using the entire fucking stack!
So the core of my question is: Should the leg extension be held on the same podium the might squat, The King of Quad training, is placed? Also does using the leg extension warrant the use of the entire fucking stack? Yet again I apologize for the length. I already know the answer but I want the opinions of more wise minds.
