(Possible) Reasons Why You Squat More Than Deadlift Your form is bad in both exercises. Without a video or someone checking your form, this can't be (dis)proven. You don't like deadlifting; as a result, you (probably) apply minimal efforts to it. If you want to be good at deadlifting, you've got to perform it more often, enjoy it (or at least pretend), ...

To some extend, the length of your legs and arms in relation to your overall length will affect easy you add weight in different lifts, but since there's such a big difference, in the "wrong" direction, I don't think that's the underlying issue here. I would start out by making sure my technique is good. Either find someone who knows what they are doing and ...

If you are doing it in proper form, it'll build your middle back, lower back, glutes, legs and it'll also help strength the sides of the abs. Your shoulders and traps should see almost no change. You do get your traps sore because of all the weight that is resting on top of them but you are not putting them under tension. If you want to build your ...

However after 2 years of doing squats now below parallel and working on form, I can say that not only have I not had knee pain after squats, but my legs actually feel alot stronger. I have a fast synopsis of how to avoid knee pain after squats here.

often those "challenges" don't progress at a realistic pace, and it sounds like there may not be the appropriate rest days involved. You may be used to squatting, but bear in mind that DOMS takes 24 hrs to kick in, and 48 hrs to then go away (on average), without rest days, that's loads of workouts on top of your DOMS. Regarding cold showers, have you ...

The general principle is that if you are looking to maximize your muscle mass, you work the larger muscles more than the smaller ones (i.e. more fatigue inducing reps). That means you would work your triceps more than your biceps, your quads and glutes more than your hamstrings, etc. You would also work your back and your general core more than everything ...

There is no reason to train them more often, because as MÃ¥rten says, the fact that your legs are bigger, ensures that you use more weight, thus training them more. How often you train them depends entirely on your goals. For instance, a general worker-outer like me will do a split, and just rotate the days. But if you take a person who is actively looking ...

Well, they already are. If you compare leg press with bench press, you'll probably leg press about 3 times as much weight as you bench. So the proportionality to muscle size is already there. Adding more reps or sets to your legs would be out of proportion.

There is generally no consensus about anything. We all have different bodies. We all react differently to different stimuli. That said, 60 reps of anything is a stamina exercise, and not a strength exercise. And your friends who did hundreds, weren't developing strength. They were developing further the ability to do hundreds of reps. The best advice we ...
