How do I know if I'm working hard enough?

How do I know if I'm working hard enough? Is it the burn, is it the soreness, or just results?...by what measure do I gauge if I'm pushing myself enough? I try to push hard on all I do, but I never know whether or not I'm really doing as much as my body can handle. That's the simple version of...

Building the quadriceps/teardrop muscle on the thighs

Barring the hack squat machine (which I don't have access to), what's the next best way to build your quadriceps on the thighs? I don't have much mass to begin with, so I'm just focusing on squats.

[vid] Training with the legends: Tom Platz

I've put this in the O35 since those younger mostly won't have heard of him. It's three parts, you can see the other two in the sidebar. In this first part he talks about how mindset is as or more important than food, training and so on. -1EG-FaNt8o

Cutting...just tell me

I'm not talking "cutting" to generically lose weight. I'm talking cutting to get from a moderate bodyfat% to a low bodyfat%. I want to hear from guys who have cut to 12% or lower. So I got it in my mind that I was going to cut from 15% down to 12% (or lower) because I wanted to get rid of...
