I cant even begin to imagine the size of your legs

Did you get much gains in the upper body ? what kind of set up was it, was it any of the standard ones that I posted ?

Quad size for me is a struggle, mostly due to some nerve damage from a back injury. They will always lag behind my upper body I think. But they do grow and are at 26".

I did not run the typical 20 rep squat programs, I think squatting that much is not the best way to go for a lot of guys. I think it's the reason that so many people burn out so quickly on 20 rep squat routines. I incorperated 20 rep squats into a push/pull routine. So I was only 20 repping three times in two weeks.

When I started 20 rep squatting my max was 100 lbs for 10 reps. I finished the year squatting 300 lbs for 20 reps. Also, my bodyweight went from 165 lbs to 200 lbs. It was a night and day difference and I am so glad I did it.
