I've heard that many guys from Vince's opted to train at a different gym on "leg day."

Probably so they wouldn't have to listen to Gironda bitch at them!

             i heard that too, as vince's didn't have squat racks and abhorred the regular barbell squat. he was  more into hack squats and sissy squats and such.

40 years ago, the leg press I used was not like the ones I use today.


i remember those, bill grant was using one and a couple of plates flew off and snacked him in the head according to legend.probably the one as  is using here

Believe it or not, my aunt used to do these laying on the living room floor. Although she didn't use a lot of weight, I don't recall how she would place the bar on her feet.

to ignore the back squat is a mistake. A terrible mistake. Park showed the type of size gained with the squat. manly power & mass.

I have a vertical leg press machine in my garage, which I got cheap on craigslist. I love it!

As for Vince Gironda and squats (and leg pressing)... he seemed to strongly favor a more wire-y, compact type of physique rather than the thicker builds associated with back squats, such as Reg Park and Bill Pearl. Even John Grimek, whose example first inspired Gironda in the field of bodybuilding, used the squat as a foundation of his routine. And of course, as part of the Hoffman/York crew, Grimek was also known as an Olympic lifter; whereas Gironda was against Olympic lifts for bodybuilders.

Reading through a lot of Gironda's books and articles, I have noticed that Gironda would strongly recommend against back squats except in very rare cases; he thought they developed the glutes too much and widened the hip structure. However, he seemed to remain absolutely silent when it came to specific examples of bodybuilders who used heavy back squats in their routines, such as the aforementioned Pearl, Park and Grimek.

Vince was sort of a wiry looking fellow. Guess he was able to accept that.
