    squats


    For legs I do about 6 sets of squats.
    1 warm up set then set of 10- heavier set of 6-6-6
    last set is heaviest and go to failure

    I also do calves

    Will this build legs well?

    This will build legs very well.

    Just make sure you are getting stronger too. So maybe every month or so aim for some kind of increase in either weight, sets, or reps.

    i wish they loved me as much as I love them....
    Always get screwed up on the lowering portion, my technique in this lift has been my downfall for years... My shoulder flexibility issue too...
