Goddamn I love how casually he lifts that...makes it look like a warm-up. No psych-up, no positioning, just lifts it.

I hope so.. I'm squatting 3x a week purely to improve my squat, but my quads are definitely getting much bigger too.

this.

in one of dan johns articles, he talks about the crazy leg development of a famous Russian hammer thrower, and that this guy routinely front squats with 200kg for 8 reps,

from that point on whenever somebody asked him (dan john) how to get big legs, he would tell them "front squat 440llbs x 8". lol

yep. though I am training more like a bodybuilder now, and for the few years I trained for PL using the Westside method i did lots of rows, the VAST majority of my lifting life the only thing i did for my back was deadlift, cleans, pulls, and snatches.

and most people who know me think my back is my most impressive body-part.

His quads are mind blowing but his lats also pop out ridiculously as well. Awesome.

@Ivan's quads
Not bad, but I've seen better.
His strength is astonishing, though.
