Quads are my most stubborn bodypart but I think I've finally figured out what should work well for me.
(pics at the end of page 6 too)
What is it?
Also awesome stuff
Basically a very thorough warm up where I think the main key is getting my quads and hams pumped before starting squats. That combined with doing higher reps on my quad exercises allows me to really feel my quads working more as opposed to just feeling like I'm killing my knees.
@Bug Haha, if only. I swear I look a lot bigger in these pictures than I really am.

Impressive progress KingBeef. You seem to have the right genetics for this so far as being able to add apreciable size with no apparent fat gain. Reminds me of Levrone who used to diet up for competitions.
I wasn't around at the time, but this kinda seems like what the brandon curry thread should have been. Definitely looks like you've got the ability to do big things, I look forward to the continued updates.

I've been told before eating salmon and tuna every day isn't a great idea because of mercury content. Do you eat fish EVERY day? I used to eat a can of tuna a day until i read an article on it
A can of non-albacore tuna a day is fine.
What's the deal with the albacore, mercury content?

I pretty much eat the exact same things everyday minus the Mass XXX on non workout days where I try not to exceed 150G carbs. And also 2 cups of broccoli/spinach a day. Never really plug them into fitday though since they have a pretty negligible effect on macro/calorie totals.

I appreciate all the positive feedback guys. One question though, what qualities define good genetics as they pertain to bodybuilding? I've always believed that being an ectomorph and the fact that it's not easy for me to gain any kind of weight that my genetics aren't really ideal for bodybuilding as compared to a mesomorph who could gain more easily. The main things I like about my physique are my symmetry and small waist (30" right now).
As far as nutrition, heres a typical workout day.
