Squats are often the exercise that separates
the wannabes from the big boys.
As every serious bodybuilder
knows, Squats are often the exercise that separates the wannabes
from the big boys. There’s no doubt that good old Squats are
still the best all around muscle developer out there—they not
only work to increase muscle-mass in the lower body, they also have
a beneficial anabolic effect on the entire body.
Here’s an easy way to up the intensity even higher with your
Squats and blast your legs to new growth. Some of you may already
do this, but if you don’t give it a shot.
Do your regular warm-ups. During your working sets, drop your
weight down by about 15%-25%. Perform your Squats as
usual—descending to parallel with proper form. However,
instead of locking out your knees at the top of the movement,
maintain continuous tension on your muscles by stopping short of
lock-out and slowly dropping back down to parallel. Repeat for a
set of 8-20 reps without locking out until the last rep.
You’ll feel your upper legs explode.
