Is barbell squat a good enough exercise that I can avoid doing other leg exercises entirely? Posted on May 9, 2023 by Anonymous Is barbell squat a good enough exercise that I can avoid doing other leg exercises entirely?
Add in at least 1 hamstring exercise or RIP your knees. Otherwise yes
Yeah I'm learning it the hard way, I did hip thrusts to but mainly barbell and dumbell squats with calf raises after
What are some good hamstring workouts?
I'm to weak for a nordic curl
Nothing wrong with the basics. RDLs and hamstring curls are the go to. You can also do good mornings instead of RDLs if you want. Lots of carryover. They just bias the same muscles differently
High bar squat with ankle elevation
There you go, all you need
With my back, I don't think I'll ever do that. I'll add in the other ones though, cheers.
What's wrong with your back? Light RDLs can be good for some back pain.
Google instructions and no, there's should be no hip movement at all so it will do literally 0 for your ass.
NTA but I am going to fuck you limb from limb.
Sure you are anon, sure you are
Maybe a dumb question, but what's wrong with Good Mornings?
Nothing if you don't bow like a Japanese dude meeting the emperor. Bend over until you feel a stretch in your hamstrings and spinal erectors and then stand up
Wtf is a sissy squat and will it make my butt bigger?
No, the complete opposite
They're for finishing off your quads (rectus femoris) with zero glute involvement
Plus they're better than leg extensions because they actually heal your knee tendons
>you forgot good morning
Good morning sir
>Wtf is a sissy squat
Basically a bodyweight quad extension.
Not what you need
You REALLY need a posterior lower leg exercise, you wouldn't just work your chest and no back, your bi and no tri...
You forgot good morning
Why would you need any of these
bulgarian split squats are a good alternative to add in from time to time if you can do them without wanting to have a nice day
You need three exercises minimum to complete your legs. If you only squat you'll get zero calves, and very little glutes+hamstrings. The minimal program for legs is
Then you can add some isolations for the few small muscle groups that those do not exercise or for more volume on certain muscles.
whomst, please bros
How the hell do I get a physique like her as a guy?
Have wide hips
you don't need more
Deadlift and Squat are literally ALL you need for legs, period point blank
Only red blooded heterosexual ITT
I want a girl with black hair and thick thighs to cuddle & procreate with
