    my dad used to squat and I kept hearing that it was a sick exercise,
    hit the rack, started with just the bar, and kept moving up, determination to do more is my motivation
    first it starts off with sound that can be moved, and next shes looking to see if you have some light that can reflect. i've dealt with girls like this before. best to stay away

    i Watch the vid of Tom Platz squatting 500lbs for 23 reps. tends to motivate me a bit.

    I hate steroids and most supplemets..stick to the basics and train hard.

    Adapt and Overcome

    ?Greatness lies not in being strong but in the right using of strength, and strength is not used rightly when it only serves to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own."

    Strength does not come through winning. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

    Compare any other exercise to squats, and they're worlds apart.
    I don't need to know all of the advantages to doing squats, all I need to know is that based on the way they feel, there's lot of adaptation going on and it's a lot more than just my quads growing.

    Asking why I do squats is like asking why I workout, because I want to be stronger and more capable. As soon as I agree to the idea that exercise is good for me, I've already inherently agreed to doing squats as often as I am able.
    A man can only be beaten in two ways: if he gives up, or dies.

    Squats always scare me, to have the weight all on my shoulders, no pad, no frills... ass to the grass... it sucks, no other words to describe it...

    When my set is done, i'm sweating, probably a drip in my eye, huffing and puffing... but thats what you need to do... if you want your body to produce GH, thats the best way to build mass is through the Squat... you must burden your body with the weight you intend to gain.

    Well, I'm beginning to enjoy the feeling of weight training (takes a while give it time).
    Squats are one of the best ways to train with weights.
    Therefore, I enjoy the feeling of squatting. No need for motivation.
    I like to squat.

    my knees shift from right to left, such that my right leg ends up directly under my body, or there about... Its not as extreme as i make it sound, but.. i still dont like it...

    well... typically they say using your hips concentrate on keeping your knees as wide as possible while you going up...

    I've learned that one leg squats actually do more to improve groin and hip-flexor strength than two-legged squats... also this has less stress on your knees too while you improve your form...

    I think 'fuk 99% of the world that doesn't train legs because I am about to get beastmode and develop quads the size of treetrunks' (semi srs)

    For real tho just man up and do the damn thing. Do you want to better yourself? It shouldn't even be a question. Man up.
