Why don't you do them 3/week then?
>>
>>35630289
I squat, do quad extensions, and leg press

I would better worry about your shoulders/traps imbalance m8

Here's a bit of a better pic but they still are caner
>>
Try higher reps (15-20) and maybe even more weight. When your legs are shaking you know you had a good workout. Leg day twice a week 14 sets would be a good.
>>
>>35630440
Ill try that out because I have been increasing the weight but I only do 8-10 reps. Thanks anon
>>
>>35630278
medium intensity steady state cardio on a bike machine, minimum 1 hour a day. Use your ankles to drive the pedals (not your thighs.)

That or childhood obesity
>>
>>35630466
That would not give your legs mass. Bad advice.
>>
>>35630466
Ill try that out too and I was always a twig growing up so its not obesity
>>
I have skinny as legs myself. I was a distance runner for a long time. Legs are getting better tho. For squats are started with a 12/10/8/8 progressive overload with the last set slow negatives and it worked really well. Now I'm on a pyramid of 8/6/4/2/4/6/8. Which demolishes the legs. Next I'll try German volume 10x10. Try those theyrequirements working well for my skinny legs.
>>
>>35630504
It's mainly for the calves

>>35630507
Eat plenty of simple carbs ~1 hour before you do your cardio
>>
>>35630278
No disrespect m8 but you're small all over. You just gotta lift and eat. You don't grow massive legs overnight unless you naturally have big legs

How much do you squat, as in what weight?
>>
>>35630541
Thanks for the tip nigga. I hope my legs will get aesthetic soon
>>
>>35630570
Im 5'10 and 163 and Ive been bulking since septmeber from 149 and i only squat like 225. Been trying real hard to get bigger and stronger. Been getting a little frustrated lately
>>
>>35630598
Well m8 that's not bad progress. And the weight isnt too bad for higher reps vs your bw. Just keep going.
>>
>>35630570
Dfuck has that even to do with anything. He clearly has unbalanced legs to upper body proportion so he needs to work out his legs more often.
>>
>>35630613
Thanks for the tips m8. I think the missing key is that my reps arent high enough
>>
>>35630578
Np. We're basically at the same stats as well. Been bulking since Oct. 5'10". Started 144lbs and I'm at 164lbs. Now. I'm not sure what my 1rep max is cause I stay away from that till I know I've built a strong foundation first but my 2 rep for the pyramid is at 225lbs. But my legs are slightly bigger than yours.
>>
>>35630616
Yeah as much as i would love to blame it on genetics youre 100% right anon. Trying to fix this shit
>>
>>35630663
What does your whole routine look like if you don't mind?
>>
>>35630720
For legs i usually start with squats 135 for 3 sets of 8 after, then move up doing 2-3 sets of around like 6 reps until i reach the 200's then i can only do 2-3 reps and do 2-3 sets. And then i do leg press and quad extensions the same way with different weights
>>
Track pants tbqh senpaitchi
>>
>>35630278
eat more
>>
>>35630598
225 is enough to see real growth

But you need to eat. Give it time
>>
>>35630278
>I'm an attention whore
caught ya!

work on everything overall desu senpai baka

also, don't be a fag, you're okay
>>
>>35630336
there's your problem right there

you should ONLY squat

you're overworking your legs by doing le hypertrophy xd

if you want big legs you need to squat heavy and only squat

ive been lifting for 3 months doing Stronglifts 5x5 and I have bigger legs than you
