    IMO your quads are the highlight. They are cut to shreds and look great. The calf and hammies lack that intense separation. This is buy no means negative feedback. Great work and keep it up.

    Not bad...nice shape

    I think they need overall size...and you need to pay particular emphasis to the posterior of your leg.

    Good luck.

    You're quads are pretty damn solid. Great job. I think out these three areas, quads, calves, and hammies............hammies could use the most work. I think calves are nice, but could be brought up. Overall very nice job again.

    you have good muscularity, but its hard to say if you have symmetry without the whole picture.

    Indeed big quads, but your hams, and calves need work.

    Maybe when your pose, try pose one calf only. Because I have noticed that when I pose calves like on your picture, the calves doesn't want to flex hard enough, because of my limited weight. This is solved by placing all the weight on the calf you are flexxing - or you can push the leg down to the ground, which also does the trick which is need for Back Double Biceps pose.

    Two questions:
    1) What's "afgh?"
    2) Are you doing full squats, meaning below parrallel?

    Haha, I thought it was a lifting competition or something.

    That may be your answer to more mass on your quads, but if you're not comfortable doing it than by all means stick to what you're doing.

    Yeah, I still go deep, no matter what the weight is. My form doesn't change just because I go heavy, but I lift significantly less than you. In fact, only yesterday did I hit 495 for the first time, but it was all the way down. You should work your way slowly up to higher weights while going deeper. This is probably why you have great conditioning in your legs, but not much mass.

    Personally, I think belts and a wraps are a must if you're squatting deep and heavy. However, if need be, I can still lift heavy without the wraps. I try not to rely on them.
