John McCallum was also an advocate of Vitamin C for recovery. It rhymes too. Vitamin C for recovery.

While I don't move near the weight of some of you, I have found that I do worse when I don't squat multiple times a week. I do vary the variations, but that is more due to lower back issues than leg recovery. Each of us are different, find what works best for your body and stick with it.
