        Squats heavy for 1-2 reps up to a top set.
        Thats all you need for legs.

        I do 20 80-90% cleans or snatches. Followed by 10-20 front squats or back squats (depending on how close to my max I'm going).

        I will also do some overhead pressing as part of my warm up for cleans. I'll generally start with some power cleans and I'll do some strict press complexes.

        Upper body is an accessory. I might do some bicep curls, incline bench press, and cable work to promote stability in my overheads.

        If I'm too tired to squat heavy, I might do romanian deadlifts or good mornings instead.

        There are so many different kinds of compound barbell lifts that it doesn't really get repetitive.

        One exercise that I love is the one armed barbell snatch. I can only do 65kg right now (just learning the movement). But you feel alpha as fuck one armed overhead squatting a barbell in a commercial gym that calls itself a 'health club'.

    It's unattractive, it's painful, it's takes more effort from your CNS and body as a whole than most upper body movements, and any aesthetics gains are slow and painful.

    In short it's a long term investment and a painful one at that

        100% this. May take a bit of time to get aesthetic legs, but once you do it's not that hard to maintain. It's somewhat of an ongoing joke in my friend group, about "Oh look at Anon's quads, gotta show 'em off amirite?"

      Hey friend, not sure you understand the meaning of the work "painful." If it actually hurts, and isn't just uncomfortable, you're fucking doing it wrong. But sure, complain about muh CNS.

          Yeah bro squats and deadlifts are pretty niche despite being 2/3rds of the powerlifting movements and squats being a primary movement for weightlifting training.

      Squats are the king of all compounds when it comes to boosting testosterone which makes it a lite-steroid, a natural one at that. So it actually lifts all other lifts also.

    I don't like leg day, or any split day, because it's easier to get quality volume spreading out the work. So I work legs, back, chest, arms, shoulders, abs, neck everyday.

    I do legs and back work twice a week - I think I'm hitting them enough. It's probably not optimal but I enjoy it. Other days I just do benching, pressing and curls.

      Well you should still do cardio when your sore. Movement helps reduce the inflammation and improves the healing process.

      Do cardio with sore legs. The bloodflow really helps it heal faster. I used to waddle around for a few days after every leg day, but I started just running through it and it helped a ton.

      Go swimming or stair climbing at a gentle pace afterwards. Blood flow and l-carnitine (or alcar) are extremely important in order to catch and start a faster recovery cycle:

    My tibialis or whatever muscle is shorter than normal so I can't really lift my toes. This makes it hard for me to do stuff like squats or even leg press. Is there anything else I can do to train quads while I slowly retrain my leg to be able to bend my toes again?

      You might get proportional legs if you are a dyel. When I benched 3pl8 I could squat 5pl8, and i still occasionally had someone tell me it looks like I skip leg day.

      Something here will definitely help you, if you are too lazy to watch the videos, the idea is that strengthening the surrounding muscles of the injured area will strengthen the damaged area because more often than not, weakness and stiffness in the surrounding muscles pull the tendons in the knee causing pain.
      At the very least you will improve your knee strength and make the pain manageable.
      A few exercises that the videos don't mention except for one, is isometrics, hindu squats and overall stretches.
      Pick any of the videos that closely describes your symptoms the best, do the exercises described there and add the ones that i mentioned and over time your knees will be much more stronger.

      You shouldn't train until you're too sore to move. It's a sign you're overtraining. I squat heavy 5 times a week, but I'm never sore because I keep the volume under control

          Yes you can. You just don't do stupid volume.
          If I'm tired, I'll do 15 reps at 85%. If I'm fresh I'll never go above 20.
          If you do this enough your body will adapt to doing this.

      Honestly why would you ever train anything but high bar raw? Like I understand you can get a little more weight with wraps and a powershitter stance but unless you're in a competion you're gonna get way stronger training with this style of squat. Also it's way more fun than equipped lifting.
