^ because he said he wanted an alternative, i.e. he couldn't/wouldn't squat. Can't think of anything better for quad growth than leg presses other than squats.

smith machine squats could be a bit safer as there's no risk of falling back/forward and you could safe clip it if you get stuck. There are also a couple of squat machines I've seen which aren't the same as a regular squat... all could be alternatives I suppose. I always do free squats though...

maybe box squats on a pile of papers made from printouts of all the stupid things people ask in this thread.

the only people doing smith machine squats are the ones who drink milk mixed with coke to gain weight.

They're also usually the same fools who do leg presses with a 3 inch range of motion.

Hey I never said they were the best solutions... just some lesser alternatives. But coke and protein is probably the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Actually I've thought of putting some morning black coffee into my protein shake along with some peanut butter and oatmeal. Should taste alright and give me that caffeeine kick in the morning (I'm NOT a morning person)

I thought it was coke and evaporated milk? I've had some pretty amazing ones - a girl wanted a weight gainer but "didn't want to gain muscle." I told her the alternative wasn't appealing (referencing fat gain), and she thought i meant the protein was going to make her grow hair like a man. Also spoke with a genteleman who claimed a "perfect diet" and he was stagnant in his weight loss. I asked him to list out what his perfect diet entailed -- let's just say it started with Hardee's and ended with McDonald's. The man was eating fast food 3x per day and then proceeded to argue that his diet was perfectly fine. @ danilo - why not have a shake and then drink the coffee... or have the coffee then do a few minutes of light cardio then a shake when cutting? I can't imagine it would taste better mixed.

if it's hot coffee it will likely be terrible. I think it might work nicely in iced coffee though.

Best solution is to learn how to do a proper squat. Do bodyweight if you have to and work your way up by 1 pound at a time.

The only way you will injure your knees doing squats is either 1) doing it wrong or 2) overdoing squats. Conclusion from study: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/art...?artid=1322916
**
"The injuries typical of elite weightlifters are primarily overuse injuries, not traumatic injuries compromising joint integrity. These injury pattems and rates are similar to those reported for other sports and activities."
**

If you're doing your squats right, your knees will only get better, not worse.

What kind of light cardio would be good in the mornings...

I'm going on my honeymoon in 3 weeks and I'm trying to cut down as much as I can, shouldn't be too hard but any tips you can add are helpful
post #627 of 962
40 mins, 4x/week, 3.5 speed/8.5 incline

you are correct, sir! iced-coffee works really well when it comes to mixing whey powder, i do it in the summer and it also means you don't have to add any extra sugar to your coffee...

Hi guys,

What would you do to "burn muscle"? i mean loose muscle mass especially in the thighs?
Increase low intensity cardio and stop doing squats?
or Increase cardio low intensity (or HIIT) and squats with very light wait for 4 sets of 25 reps?


Thanks a lot in advance for your time

run every day at say, 6 MPH for about an hour and you should see results. Also decrease your protein intake.
