Train heavy or go home!

The best exercise on the planet: the squat - yet so many run from it. It utilizes the largest muscles in the human structure - the LEGS!, demands the most fuel, taxes you aerobically, has the greatest effect on the metabolic system, will drive all other lifts up!, will pack on size!, and even raise your bench (yes, I said raise your bench)! Read Randall Strassen - Super Squats.
But... most wanna-be bigs will find every way out of it! Terms like "I've read it's bad on your knees," "The leg press is just as effective," "I did not bring my jock strap today," "It will cause hemorrhoids," blah, blah, blah, make me puke!
Then there are the ones who attempt to squat - the quarter squatters. This group looks like women pissing in the woods. No.. wait... the women go lower!
So come on ladies! Tighten up the lifting belts, snort a little ammonia, and let's get huge!
Here's a little nursery rhyme that sums it up, written by an old friend from back in the day: The Mad dog.
Down the road, in a gym far away
A young man was heard to say
No matter what I do, my legs won't grow
He tried leg extensions, leg curls, leg presses too.
Trying to cheat, these sissy workouts he'd do.
From the corner of the gym where the big men train
Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain,
Where the big iron rides high, and threatens lives,
Where the noise is made with big forty-fives,
A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees,
A very big man with legs like trees,
Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack,
Chalking his hands and monstrous back,
Said "Boy, stop lying and don't say you've forgotten,
Trouble with you is that you ain't been squattin!"
