  1. Ah, I remember reading that now. Way to overcome brother!

    OK, so you can't do squats. That definitely is limiting to quality leg development BUT, IMHO you're not totally screwed.

    You need to shock your legs into growth, really throw something at them that they're not used to and force them to adapt. Some suggestions I can think of off hand:

    Leg Press / Hack Squat supersets

    LegPress 'Foxsets'

    Single Leg Presses

    One Leg Squats on the Smith Machine

    Hack Squat / SLDL alternating sets

    Leg Curl Dropsets,etc


    I like walking lunges to, but I ususally save them as a finisher and do them with light weight, or no weight at all. If you're doing a low-rep leg routine now, try going for higher reps and upping the intensity.

  2. Do you switch around your feet placement on the Leg Presses every few weeks? I was doing them shoulder width, toes slightly pointed out for a while. When i switched and went a little narrower (6" between feet) with my feet straight I saw a noticeable difference after ~ 2-3 weeks, rectus femoris noticeably became more pronounced. This is all while maintaining my usual squat form, so it made me deduce that it was the change in leg presses that was the trigger.

    Well you could do squats on the Smith machine. You'll have no balance problems, you can use a vareity of foot placements and you will be able to concentrate on squating weight rather than worrying about your lack of safety.

  6. Might I suggest trying SLOW reps for a change, too? Like 5s eccentric, 1s concentric, or 3s/3s, etc.
