[QUOTE=0311]Whatever happened to just going in there and lifting some heavy fuking weight!? I grew pretty huge legs doing 3-5 reps..Why?..Think about all the warmups I was doing to get to what I wanted to lift.

Example: A2G Squats

135 x 12
135 x 10
185 x 8
225 x 5
275 x 3
295 x 1
315 x 1
335 x 5 (workset one)
and so on..

I cannot imagine why I grew off of that vs. doing 185 lbs for 3 sets of 10-12!

Just pick a number and grow..I mean go. As the weight increases, the reps decrease..Ain't nothing Bill Starr or Mark Rippetoe says that'll make that fact null and void.


This is probably the bulk of how I do all my lifting. It always has been. Your body dosen't think, all it understands is stress.
Programs are good for the very reason of goal setting. You will push yourself to meet a goal and grow. However if you are disiplilned enough you can lift lilke 0311 just pointed out and grow just as well. Just go in there and smash some weights.

Yes! Think about this when you're reading all the Mr. Fancy routines (insert you're favorite here) at places like T-Nation.

My only admonishment, if this is your approach, is unless you have a photographic memory you need to keep a logbook.

AG2 squat is ass to grass, as in you do the squat all the way down (not parallel) and all the way up, gets some time to get used to, but its the way to squat

This always comes up. It's wrong. Dead wrong. It's really the opposite. It's just a myth.

There is some stuff on this in the How to Squat article in the Training Articles section.

Not to beat a , but you may want to consider looking in the training articles section on how to deadlift, squat, and bench. It will disspell a lot of those nasty rumors like A2G being bad for your knees. Case in point, look at me. I had major surgery on my rt. knee after I torn my cartilage. My knee (prior to surgery) was stuck at a 90 degree angle and in serious pain. Ever since I've gone ass to the grass on squats, I have never found a need to wear knee wraps or even a belt. Nothing can be safer than riding the weight all the way down.
