I usually do incline bench, then incline flys, pec dec and then some cable workout that works your lower pecs. I have no idea what it's called.
If I'm feeling really energetic I'll throw a couple more into the mix

there are different mechanics for front squats and having the bar loaded on your back.. it is definitely easier to keep yoru shins vertical when you are doing front squats because the weight is in front of you.. with the weight behind you, naturally you will have a bit more flexion in the ankles, but with that said you will have more flexion in your hips.. (leaning forward with yoru upper body) to counter the weight on your back. the key is doing it right and locking in your core/keeping your chest out..

you will never be able to keep yoru shins perfectly vertical/90 degrees. even with the "dont have your knees past your toes" rule, you will still have some ankle flexion, that isn't a bad thing. diff people have diff biomechanics. some people may never be able to safely do a barbell squat.. period... some people need to alter certain form to be able to.. if it is safely modified.. then good. it isn't always "this way or no way" train of thought.

dc5- more likely you have adapted to your leg routine.. switch up the intensity (either reps/sets/exercise/rest period). and by reps, i don't mean do 15 intead of 10-15.. i mean, do 20-30 instead of 10-15. you need to periodize to get over those plateaus. also, add some plyometrics into your workout. generally, if you do your squats correctly, it is your hammies and glutes that should really feel it the next day (unless you do front squats)... lunges= glutes and quads.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Yes, I think the point is to try to keep the shins vertical as possible. Keep it in your mind when doing reps, and you should be OK. People who forget about them, or never thought about them in the first place, are the ones with gimped up knees. And you're right, it's easier to do with front squats, which is why i like them more... It's easier to get a natural motion going, imo

In Palm Springs right now, and the hotel gym has DB's up to 50lbs and a bunch of shitty machines. Did legs today and tried out some Bulgarian Split Squats with the 50's. They are tough. Ouch. I'm sure i'll hurt tomorrow.

Just wondering, has anyone bought boxing gloves online before? I've been looking at http://southwesternmuaythai.com/ and can't find any reviews on it except on sherdog. (not really a review though)
Their BGVL-3: Twins Special Boxing Gloves 16oz are $52.99 while Bushido has it for $119.90.

Yeah I do the Bulgarian type. Very hard to do with a lot of weight, which I like. Keep the back straight

I'll definetely do them again when there is no squat rack available. They hit the legs pretty hard. I suggest using a higher bench for the rear leg as you get more ROM and a deeper squat that really hammers yours quads. I can walk this morning, but i'm aware they were worked last night.

QUESTION, what do you call those things , the "tiny bosu balls" if you will. You stand on one, one for each leg, I see nba guys training in them all the time (i.e. Nash), I'd like to know what you call those things so at least I can look online and potentially buy one. I live in HK so I don't think saying "mini bosu balls" to a fitness store clerk is gonna work. Thanks.

now now now, don't have to get narrow minded.. fitness isn't just pumping out as heavy weights as you can.. for you it is, but for others (most others) it isn't. I guess you are saying all athletes are pussy's too?

Wongtouski, are these what you are referring to?
