Difficult to squat because your tall? I guess tall people cannot sit down, run, jump off of two feet, or pick anything up off the floor. And the old sprite commercial with copy squatting 315+chains was all digital effects. Hold up. He’s not tall he’s only 6’5. Now shaq is tall so he won’t be able to squat.
Want big legs…food->HEAVY->squats->time->minimal cardio. Or don’t have a whole lot of time, heavy volume various rep scheme leg extensions and leg curls(supposedly non-functional, but who cares if your looking for size).
Theres a very good thread on chinese ROM on here, and many authors that discuss ROM for squat. Certian countries as a whole have a tough time getting into the squatting position primarily because of their lifestyles. There are just as many average or short people that claim they can’t squat either. If your going to take the time to exercise you should try to ensure that all your joints have proper range of motion for your goals. It will help in the long run.
If your not genetically inclined for big legs it is tough to get them to grow. Even small legs can handle alot of weight and alot of volume. So you have to hit them heavy hard and in different ways if you have trouble. The problem with squatting is many people don’t have the secondary muscle strength to really work the quads and hammies. Which is why I say leg extensions and leg curls.
One last thing you can try is explosive squats, and sprints since they hit the fast twitch muscles which supposedly have alot more potential for size.
