    squats...how long before you notice any changes?

    Just wondering how long do you have to do squats before you notice any changes to your legs and ass? I am beginning to notice a rounder ass and its been about 3 months. But i use the leg press and do deadlifts. who knows...

    Since i probably have different goals to you it may not be relevant but anyway since i started heavy squatting i notcied my legs increase an inch within the first 6 weeks, whilst eating heaps..

    Not to presume your goals or anything im going to think that you dont want to put heaps of inches on your legs..? But then any change in composition in the lower body should be more noticable within 6 -8 weeks i would imagine.

    thanks heaps. my legs have started to change shape also and I want to bulk them with muscle but not too big. My main goal with squats is to firm the butt and the legs. I am seeing results though. thanks a lot for replying. rep to you.

    I started squatting not long ago. (3 months ago) Since then my ass has tightened up and probably got a bit bigger (bulking) Main growth though has been in vastus medialis and upper quad - tensor fasciae latae, rectus femoris. My ass probably gets hit harder from deadlifts.

    Strength has rocketed up too.

    just came back from the gym and squatted 50 kilos using the smith machine though. I got a bad back so I am easing into it using the smith before I use the bar. I did leg presses tonight, I used 120kgs on the machine. feel sore but good.

    Whoever told you to use this for squatting with a bad back is wrong.

    This.

    Do BB squats. You won't be able to squat 50 kg, so start light, with 20 kg or so. Work your way up from there.

    I Would suggest free weight BB squats start light and youll appreciate it more and see better progress from your core muscles to your lower body.

    sure, I did my back 1 year when I sneezed and I went for xrays. they showed as having arthritis in the lower back from either a fall when I was young or at birth. The 2 lower ones are the problem, but I have not had back soreness for ages. I used to be 31 kilos heavier and ever since losing the weight, not back problems anymore.

    Start off light and work your way up from there. Post a video here, so we can assess your form. There are two basic ways of squatting - a. high bar and b. low bar. A high bar squat will place more emphasis on your quads. A low bar squat will place more emphasis on your posterior chain (glutes and hams) and also less stress on your lower back, than a high bar squat. I'm guessing, you'd want to try low bar squats.

    Here's a good link on how to do low bar squats -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qbBsn7IbPU

    A low bar postition, would require you to place the bar over your rear delts.

    I've always had great genetics as far as leg development goes. When starting my workout regiment about a year ago, I went from squatting 135 to 225 in about 3 weeks. My leg development was pretty instant.

    Squats are my favorite exercise for getting a massive full body pump. Nothing else like it in the gym.

    I think it depends on how much you squat. When I first started I was going all out, ATG with 5RM's 3 times a week. I could only keep that up for a couple weeks, but legs definitely got thicker.

    Since no one has mentioned it... if your goal is to look firmer and tighter, making sure your diet is in check will make your results more obvious quicker.

    It's all well and good to increase your squat poundage by x lbs in 6 months, but if you aren't eating correctly, it'll take much longer to see changes.
