Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
I'm a control freak. I'm extremely anal about my regimen, regardless of whether I intend to be or not. During downtime, I'll find myself thinking about what groups I've already hit, what groups I could hit again, and what's been lagging.
There's no doubt that squats are very important for building mass and building strength. I go through phases of dedicating a lot of time and effort to squats (and quads in general), but then I generally fall back off and resort to the same old same.
Deadlifts are definately my personal favorite. Squats are definately something I proscratinate and dread. And, in fact, I think I try to force it to the back of my mind & look for reasons to avoid them whenever possible - such as the fact that I work construction, in piperacks, etc. and hate the feeling of having sore legs for days on end - while having to climb and crawl and shit for work.
Regardless, I think I'll force myself to incorporate them into my routine more often again now. Why the hell not? I've already recognized that it's a problem. I just need to man up & get back to it more regularly.
