according to j. falcon just standing and walking around all day is enough of a training stimulus for some decent sized legs

free hand squats alone will cause growth to a point but eventually you will have to do one-legged squats or add weight if you want more growth. I used to do free hand squats but did a pre-exhaust superset with leg extensions and this worked good.If you´re going for a toned look with some muscle it might be all you need. sometimes i have done free-hand lunges at the end of my leg workout.

I do front squats with twice my bodyweight for reps and my legs are "toned" and somewhat muscular, for sure not big.

For really big legs you need to have either very good genes or take tons of drugs, just like with everything else. Most people are delusional thinking their legs are "toned and muscular" when 100m runners got bigger legs than them...

Funny how some guys think as soon as you use weight you will look like a monster..lol The legs are very,very powerful and robust. I know guys into athletics who squat fairly heavy too.

Yeah, I weight around 80-82kg right now and I will diet down to 75kg soon. My back squat is around 180kg, soon to be 190kg, deep. Legs are kinda OK but nothing to write home about. The only thing that is somewhat "big" or noteworthy about my physique is my back which has nothing to do with training, it just happened.

Depends more on the rep range, I had bigger legs off lighter weight for sets of 15 to 20 than I get now from sets of 5

misko sarcev claims its all muscle mind connection.

some claim its all heavy weights.

i say the truth is somewhere in between


another truth on the matter is, if people would consistenlty go to the gym over years and eat well, theyd grow anyway.

most people already fail at the first requirement, and lets not even mention their dietary habbits.


yes words of wisdom from Galeniko...

When Wilf Sylvester won the short man Mr.Universe he was doing 400 body weight squats along with leg extensions and leg curls. I think he was from England.
