think pretty big but functional legs are good to have for physique balance and in the gym because there are so many movements and angles to hit them from,,plus they take a lot of effort due to the strenght factor.see people do some extensions and leg curls ..couple set holding the knees pushing leg presses then saying o man what a leg workout lol,,,

my quads in "shape". far bigger now, but im fat and bloated so they dont look like much. 140x5 front squats, bodyweight around 73kg here.

shitty camera hides all the cuts and veins which were all over them, but still... nothing extraordinary.

Most people are delusional thinking their legs are "toned and muscular" when 100m runners got bigger legs than them...
Stupid statement.

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.

You cant get big legs from bodyweight movements.

You can have proportional, cut and strong legs from bodyweight squats, lunges, high rep calf raises and sprints.

I work out at home and the maximum weight I have is 3 plates per side. I used to do 50+ rep breathing squat sets with 3 plates but now I can't be bothered anymore lol (when I realised the bb.com stuff about squats increasing test were bullshit). I just do sprints and 200 bw squats once a week. I still do stiff leg deadlifts on back day though.

Since stopping heavy weight squats I have found nothing but positives. Yes my quads have got smaller but my legs are still 'toned', more flexible and my ass has gotten smaller.

Don't judge, I do it for the hoes not the bros.
