I'll tell you guys what. I'm sore, but I love this! It's insane, and I think that's why. I know it's going to get easier.

I feel like my legs are going to explode. I just have a feeling that if I keep it up, not only will I get strogner, but my quads will also grow.

I also get the feeling that I could cut back on volume a bit and it would still kick a$$. But I'm not going to.

I did it, and my legs are really tired. I have not done squats for more than 5 reps in a while and 4 sets of 9 was really tough. I feel like my form was very good and I went to at least parallel on every rep even when I was really tired.

Glad to see you tried it. Try everything you can when you're young and have the energy.

I'll be curious how the next workout goes for you...
