He stopped lifting for 3/4 years, he clearly lost strength.(Original post by RandomBadgerinoo)
Do you do the reps correctly? Never try too jump on to the highest weight you can do with a one rep max, always build up with 8 reps as a warm up, and if you're looking to hit a one rep max, do one rep on each weight as it progresses up
If you're after strength gains with a squat find out what your one rep max is, and then do 30kg less than what that one rep max is
IE If you get a one rep max of say 50kg, your progressive build would be 30kg

Who the mother**** ever said I want big legs?
For ****s sake.
Sorry, I am done.
Delete the thread.
I will never talk to gym freaks ever again. No wonder you guys have such a bad rep.

So you want to train your upper body which will put muscle on it, but want to have skinny legs, yes?

If this kid tried squatting he'd probably ego lift straight to snap city anyway.

Mind if I ask you a quick question?
If not, I'm now 16 currently at sixth form. I have never attended Gym consistently and only did so occasionally with a few of my friends from school, which was in Year 9/10. Back then, I was able to bench press about 5 reps with 30kg on each side of the bar. Now I attended gym last week for the first time in ages, and was unable to do more than 5 reps of 10kg on each side. At first, I thought it would take a few days to get used to it again, but this has not been the case... I tried again and was only able to comfortably lift 10 reps of 5kg on each side of the bar...
WTF is happening to my body??

I did say it in my first reply, but I said the "big legs" part first and you probably stopped reading there
Well, either way round, I'd still recommend training the entire body for the best result. A balanced physique is an aesthetically pleasing one
