    Quad measurement....

    Where do you guys measure your Quads for the truest measurement...

    I've always wondered, because right now when I measure halfway up from my knee I have a little over 26" wheels, but a little higher around my aductors, where my legs are the biggest I have 28" wheels...

    Just wondering because I plan on listing measurements after my current cycle and want them to be as true as possible...

    I usually measure the absolute smallest size I can get - then I measure the absolute largest size I can get - I move the tape measure up and down to find the biggest measurement - those would be the bottom of my thigh and the area about 6 inches below my hips on my upper thighs - I use those 2 measurements as my guidelines - what I measure my progress by. I've added a little over 2" so far on this cycle and the juice is just starting to kick in. I feel good about that! BTW i'm 16" at the bottom and 24" at the upper largest size

    I can leg press 1000 pretty deep for 10 reps and my legs are nowhere near 28". That’s my main problem. I think from being an athlete all of my life (gymnast) I'm very strong but I don't have a tremendous about of size. So I end up doing crazy amounts of weight to get size on and risk knee or back injury.
