An elite lifter won’t always destroy each and every lift—even the most intense and skilled powerlifter will be injured at some point. Rather than dwell on what they cannot do, top notch athletes focus on what they can.
I remember years ago seeing Tom Platz’s legs for the first time and being astonished to see that much muscle mass on a frame. Tom, known for his massive legs, got that way with squats. So, I figured, it only made sense that squatting was the ticket to big legs. I powerlifted and squatted for 8 years and gained some big wheels.
