I'm starting a series on the biggest bodybuilding mistakes.

I want you opinion...what are the Top 5 Quad Building Mistakes?

I'll be the first to say that 1-5 biggest mistakes are not squatting. I'm trying to squat with three bad disk. I think that is statment enough.

I was going to start with squats, but I figure I'd let it float for a post :)

You ever try hack squats (like a deadlift with the bar behind your back)? I don't know whether they'd put more or less strain on your disks.

Doing cardio.

It is a mistake to spend more time/effort doing leg extensions than some form of squatting.

Thumbs up. Keep them coming.

Personally, I have no problem with leg extentions and curls as long as people are doing the bread and butter exercises as well. By bread and butter I mean some form of squat and/or leg press. Wish I could be more original with my mistake idea, but focusing on the "finishing" moves before you have the mass to sculpt is a dreadful mistake.

1. Not training legs
2. Too many isolation exercises in their routine, not enough compounds
3. Diet
4. Improper form, just jumping into exercises without guidance / understanding i.e. deadlift form
5. Progressing too much too soon and doing yourself an injury - Leave your ego at the door.

1. form
2. thinking that leg presses compare to the squat
3. only doing extensions and curls
4. not mixing the reps
5. form
