Never went above 80s since I always trained at a community centre, and did barbell at Sport Central

On top of the world right now
Just out of curiosity, do you do legs?

Those stats @ 152lb BW is pretty impressive!

If you were an active member on this thread, you would know my strongest lift out of the big three is my squats. I can hit 315lb around 3-4 times.

Really wished I put as much focus in my hamstrings as I did in my quads. They are really lacking, as I concentrated primarily on bringing out the 'teardrop'.

if you are doing a technically sound squat, your glutes and hamstrings would be activated, equally if not more, than your quads.

Well it depends on the way he does his squats too. If its a narrower stance, he could probably put more weight onto the bar but the squat will be more quad-dominant. A wider stance feet apart will activate more glutes and hamstrings...

How do you figure? The biomechanics would technically be the same. Flexion at the hips, knees, and ankles... If the stance were narrower, the weight wouldn't be as heavy due to stability. If he were to do front squats, then yes his quads would be activated more as there would be less hip flexion and the weight is distributed differently than if it were on his back.

hip flexion and smaller plantar flexion angles woudl def be much more achievable thru WSS as compared to NSS

i don't really do narrow stance squats anymore just because of the anterior displacement and stress that it places on my knees

What I meant was that my secondary exercises for legs have all been quad-focused such as hack squats. My leg press have always been done with a narrower stance, and I always did a lot of leg extensions. The only thing I did before for every leg workout is lying hamstring curls, and would sometimes get lazy to do stiff-legged deads.

then yeah, wide stance squat, toes pointed to the 45s is the way to go... i don't do hamstring curls for shit, and im pretty pleased with my hammy development

So tonite I was doing bench press and directly in front of me was a chick on a stairclimber type thing. She was a little skinny but I'd give her an 8.5/10 RS standards wearing uber tight yoga pants and shirt. She was sorta pushing her tight little butt backwards with her hips sorta rolled forward with just enough side to side wiggle. It was different than most asses on cardio equipment. Brahs I couldn't help but stare directly at her butt hole in a mesmerizing gaze. I can't describe it, it was hypnotizing.

No homo. But that's why I wouldn't mind working out at an all guy gym. You don't know how many times I need to rush home early and work my muscle

Long ass day in the gym. 10 working sets of bench and 10 sets of squats.
Feeling a slight strain in my left pec developing. If it doesn't get better next week I will drop the smolov benching. I'm pretty paranoid of tearing a pec.
