        That’s because ego lifters put way too much weight on the machine. Do light weight, longer ROM, and more reps (like 15-20)

    Really no point in doing deadlifts unless you want to get better at doing... deadlifts. Romanian version is better for building big hammies.

      How about deadlifts are the best exercise for learning the hip hinge which directly translates into proper squat form, let me guess, you don’t do the hip hinge because you’re afraid the stitches in your chud vag will rip

    squats and dead lifts are almost certainly all you need. However, if someone enjoys the stupid leg press, or needs to do another exercise because they are profoundly broken in some way and cannot squat or deadlift, I think those other things can work, just not as well, just not as fast.

    I should note that sometimes, some calf machine work (esp donkeys) may be helpful, if hypertrophy is a goal.

      He's wrong and also he's a medicore deadlifter which is why he's never been a threat on the WSM podium. Deadlift is the least dangerous out of the 3 powerlifting lifts and powerlifting in general has low injury rates. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6059276/

    accessories only on legs. we've talked about this a billion times newfag.
    You have used your legs every day multiple times a day for your entire life.
    No other part of your body is used as often as your legs (other than your asshole probably).
    You don't need squats or deadlifts ever.

    You need to work out the aesthetics of your legs.

    It depends on your goals:

    Bodybuilder: No, you're gonna want to do leg press, leg extensions, leg curl and calves etc

    Athlete: Mostly, would probably be good to throw in some unilateral stuff aswell, and maybe some more hamstring work.

    Average Fitizen who just wants to look good: Definitely for your thighs, include some calf work if having small calves bother you

    Whad do you guys thing about dumbbell deadlifts? Maybe im not putting enough weight but they dont feel very challenging, and are very similar in form to a dumbbell squat

    • 2 months ago

      You're definitely gonna be limited by your ability to overload. Just do regular deadlift. I can imagine deadlifting dumbbells is alot more awkward aswell since the handles will be alot closer to the ground.

      only if you can't do regular deadlifts for whatever reason, imo -- like not having a bar or plates or a space to work with. dumbbells are generally very low in cost-efficiency unless you have a gym membership and don't have to pay out the ass every time you wanna increase your weight, but they also don't really go very high for the purpose of deadlifts. i'd say stick with standard deads, personally

    How can I tell you what's enough for your legs? They are your legs and you got your own idea of what you want your legs to look like.

    No, if you squat high bar then you need to at least add a couple sets of good mornings for the hamstrings, about 2 sets of 5 your usually squat weights.

    They are so good that you can't replicate their effects on the body even with a myriad of machines, that being said you should do unilateral work

    Add farmer's walks, hiking, or running and you're good. Leg press is optional.

    I prefer just focusing on the squats and doing accessories like good mornings, chinups and machine rows to build my deadlift, instead of deadlifting. Because it's too taxing

    No. Look at the strong guys in /plg/. They're squatting past the 500's but look like the average fatass.

    See the way her torso is kinda going in between her legs, should I be trying for that as a man or is that just a physiological difference on the lift?

      It depends on a lot of thing including your hip joints, leg length, torso length and bar placement on your back. Find where you sit comfortably with a body weight squat, then slowly add weight. At low weight go slow so you can feel your form, you should be stable and explosive as you squat.

    Normally I use most of my energy on leg day for squats, DL and hip thrusts, and then a few accessories. For the last couple weeks though I just haven’t felt like squatting, so instead I’ve replaced that with leg press, and I’ve been seeing some more impressive leg pumps than what I’m used to. And I don’t use the leg press like a retard. I vary between high weight low reps, low weight high reps, pause reps, longer TUT, etc.

    I actually like the leg press a lot now. Very valuable piece of equipment. I think it just gets a bad rep because it seems like most of the people who use it just do it for their egos
