Just did my first barbell squats in over 2 years. Perfect form, (taken and memorised from exrx.net) and only a light wieght - 95 pounds - 3 sets of 10.
My hams and inner thighs always feel it more than my quads.
I do go arse to grass, literally, arse an inch from touching the ground.
But isn’t it the quads doing most of the lifting compared to where I feel it most - the hams, glutes and inner thighs?
So why donlt my quads hurt as much.
Back in the day a few yrs back when I did 6 months of 5 x 5 and then a few months of 20 rep breathing squats it was still the same - inner thighs and hams literally fcuked, whilst the squads felt just a little worked but okay and bugger all in the calves.
Is this normal? Is this good or bad?
Squats are my lower body push compound on my ‘A’ workout of my 3 x a week full body. On the ‘B’ workout I do deadlifts as my lower pull compound and add calf raises 3 x 10 as supplemental.
Workout goes - mon / wed / fri - ABA / BAB
Quads getting enough or add leg press on ‘B’ day?
