Brendan currys squats were quarters at best and if he would of taken 2 years off to squat properly like a tom platz like a ronnie coleman the whole offseason he would of actually made some gains.
Examples through time.
Arnold great chest up until his first retirement. His rom was full, no Time under tension bullshit and his weights heavy. He had weak legs but look at how he squatted. Apperently in the offseaon he'd go deeper, but why not all year? If he did he'd have had better legs.
Kevin levrone again a great chest,delts and tris. Look at the ROM and his commitment to lift heavy on his chest moves. He was also known for his big lay offs in offseason and for quick transformations afterwards. He transformed with progressively heavier reps over a full ROM. Levrone had a weak back and legs. Dunno about his back training but his leg training was pretty poor. Partial leg presses and if his "deep squats" from the leverone report were an indication of his squatting proess back in the day then its no wonder his legs were behind his upper body.
Dorian yates- big all over. Look at the ROM he used on all all his fucking moves. He couldnt squat but ive never seen any pro do a leg press with as much ROM as him and his presses were top notch. Photos of him before he was a bodybuilder would suggest he has worse genetics then most people he beat as well Training full Rom and heavy (not HIT) got him that good.
meh, it shits me. Bodybuilding is plagued by too much "what works for me bullshit" and not what actually works. The pros need to hook up with the nattys and learn to train so that can actually make some fucking gains.
"oh but hes not natural his chest is too big for a natty,its even bigger then mine, hahaha your idiots" Some roided fool referring to a top level natty
"Man he flat benches 400 for reps" A non fool
"So Do I" The Same roided fool
" Yeah but does the bar move more than an inch for you? and is yours on a smith machine? because his is full ROM and its free weights." A non fool
"Well yes, but thats what works for me...Theres no way Hes natural." roided fool out.
"learn about progressive overload over a full ROM and actually get gains please." Non fool out
^^ I agree with you for the most part.
As for Arnold having weak legs, most of his bodybuilder footage comes from the 1975 Olympia when he was far from being at his peak mass. He injured his knee sometime in 1974 and couldn't do any leg work for many months. Check out pics of him from 1974 when he was ~245 lbs. and his legs actually were proportioned to his massive upper body.
Explain this: How come Branch with the same ROM has those legs and Brandon not? It's 90% + genetics imo. If it wasn't, then why isn't his back, chest or arms lacking also? he's using a bad form in all the exercises for them too, but they're not as bad as his form looks though. Why is Branch's chest so good? because of the great ROM he's using in the DB presses or Incline bench form? Don't think so..
Warren's squats and leg presses
Brandon's squats and leg presses
Well, Branch trains with higher intensity than Brandon. He's also way older than brandon. Perhaps Brandon could achieve something similar in years of training, although I agree that genetics play a huge role in this. Branch has excellent genetics considering his legs. Seems like he can stimulate his legs enough, with his partial movements and the right amount of gear, in order to have them as his strongest bodypart.
