I am about 5'8"ish, at a BF of between 25 and 30 (194 lbs). Losing fat being a priority, I am currently on a tight just-about-maintenance diet and have the following questions to ask:
a. Am going heavy on squats, and I intend to go lean and muscular in the long run. Are both ideas in the same sentence a contradiction? In other words, Whats the effect of going for Short reps (2-4) on heavy weights on squats. Mind you, heavy is something relative. So it might amuse you to know that what's heavy for me, is warm up for you maestros :P
My chaste intention behind this is to increase testosterone to improve the lean muscle mass growth and in turn help more fat burn.
b. Would this increase my legs size considerably to the point where it looks like one of those huge, muscular guys on the covers of BB magazines? I want more cut, definition but incredible strength for my given weight. Thats my ideal.
I am primarily big on legs since I am used to a lot of free weight body squats over the years. Is there a specific exercise that specifically works on cutting down fat on the legs so the muscles can see some light?
P.S: Sorry in advance if this post finds itself in the wrong thread or forum section. I would be happy to take a hit, go back and stand in line :-)
