This is 14-year-old Zev. He's a brand new weightlifter. He stands tall at 6'0". I've been coaching him for 2 months. After two months of training, this is his second session doing squats with weight.

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...

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.
