    Although, full squats are my favorite, I also believe that a closer stance, and just below parallel deff activates hypertrophy on my quads more.

    I think there is a sweet spot for everyone. Finding it safely is the key.

    When your in it, you know it.

    During the ROM my whole leg feels it, quads, hams, glutes, calves ..........

    Slower tempo is what does it for me, that and statics at parallel.........Fun stuff.

    Props to anyone doing squats period.

    Kudos gentlemen.

    Squats for life mate, the 'King' of exercises in my book.
