    Yeah, no sh!t. This is known by almost everyone on this board. Pretty much the only people who don't free-bar squat are those who have back or knee problems...

    Funny, I use the smith machine quite often in working legs. (Yes, I do free weight squats as well)

    Oh well, guess I'm a 270 lb. boy.

    A better title for this thread, one that is not a sweeping statement, would read:

    "An intelligent man knows how to use a myriad of leg exercises to obtain maximum development".

    Then again, what do I know.

    Lots of people at my gym with a big upper body and chicken legs, they don't understand that to have a good physique they must do squats, dead lifts, and bent over barbell rows.

    I agree those are great mass builders, yes, but you can attain great development/size by using leg presses/smith squats/hacks/extensions/lunges/ham curls/stiff legs/deadlifts/etc, w/out having to free weight squat.

    I like the free weight squat, but there was a time post-surgery (two surgeries actually) where that was not an option for me, but I managed to get everything back using other exercises.

    I've had 3 surgeries on my knees in the past so smith and hacks are about the only thing I can do anymore.
    I still do deads though, just very light weight.

    I just meant they are so physical demanding that most people try to avoid them. I need to learn to love squats.

    I do understand that, there are a lot of people who are scared to try them, or don't wish to put forth the effort needed to complete this task.

    I understood your point though, later after you "explained" your reasoning.

    That's far different from the first statement.

    I do my squats on a smith.. Its a little bit differnt one that has an angle to it and is on a cable.. I feel safer doing it then free.. I put 1 inch on my quads in 5 weeks so it must be working still. I dont have chicken legs either my quads are 24 inches.. What is a real good size quad just curious??

    I love squats, they're one of my fav workouts. Smith is a nice variation on squats, so are hacks. It's nice to have the perfect vertical raise that the smith offers.

    I did last time. When you feel like that, it helps if you lie on your back, and elevate your feet.

    Hell no! The point of elevating your feet is to let the blood come out of your legs, and back into your head. I don't know about you, but when I do leg presses, ther ain't no blood coming out of my legs. I'm talking about after the workout is done.

    I knew what you meant, I was being sarcastic, meaning, just do more work...I get the same feeling, could be that the owner of the gym doesn't consider it right unless you're sweating. The gym has no A/C and is typically 85 degrees plus so leg presses and squats will murder you
