  • Vertical jump( more muscle or more strength)

    Building muscle using different lifts

    Does building muscle using different exercises carryover into other lifts? If that doesn't make sense I'll put it this way. If you do leg extensions or leg presses and add muscle to your quads and...

    Trap bar squat vs squat

    Ok so this may seem a little odd but quick question. I no longer have access to a gym which means I can't get to a squat rack. My friend has a trap bar and he mimicked the full A2G motion by using a...

    I guess what I'm wondering is if anybody can squat 2x body weight without having to gain a lot of weight. So for example can I take my 270lb squat to 310lbs without changing my body weight of 155lbs?
