Not back squatted for a while because it tends to make my thighs too bulky compared to my upper body, probably the opposite to most people. But its not all good, my knees are nearly the same width as my thighs, I ain’t got fancy lookin legs.
Got back into the back squats after a long while deadlifting and doing overhead squats. After first workout on the back squats I did a moderate weight 4 sets total, just 15 reps x 308lbs (3 wheels with euro 44lb plates) four times. This was yesterday. Today I’ve been practically eating the carpet. Plus awful soreness in the legs, and my calorie intake and supplementation is good.
Anyone else find this desire to eat a shed load more after a back squat workout ? Anyone got on ok with squats on a reduced calorie diet ?
I don’t get this desire to eat like a horse after doing deadlifts or overhead squats, the honus of the squat weight gain mechanism must surely revolve on stimulating the appetite.
