    I just saw the pics for today and your quads are looking monsterous. :tu: What exercises have you found give the best results when it comes to training them?

    Thanks, I've been working them particularly hard over the last 5 months. Here's a typical leg day for me:

    Quads: Barbell Squats, Leg Lifts
    Hamstrings/Glutes: Lying Leg Curls, Weighted Lunges
    Calves: One-Leg Calf Raises, Angled Calf Raises

    I follow MAX-OT training principles and really go heavy for my 3 working sets on each exercise. I also attempt a 1-rep max squat between my warm-up/acclimation sets and my working sets.

    I do deviate a bit from MAX-OT for my calves and weighted lunges. My calves and glutes seem to respond better to slightly less heavy weight but increased reps (about 10-14).

    Of course getting that nice quad separation is mostly a function of low body fat levels.
