No - but left leg is slimmer+longer than right and I have pretty much never squatted adequately before.
My legs were totally atrophied from sitting and no sports and I am building them up slowly but steadily.

After ample fooling around - excellent program.
I have to adhere to the 12.5 percent rule from latter set to former - total tonnage hasnt changed radically the way I did the approach - only peak set of 5. But this is ok, since I am a total beginner.
I have watched the Westside Seminar tape and it provided me with new motivation and good tips - incorporated the dumbell tri extensions into my program and like them.
Time will tell...
