      That is a sprint cycler, though. Big difference.

        Dude has monster legs. It adds to my belief that extremely high reps for legs build mass. I was a powerlifter and low rep guy for a couple decades. I could squat 3x bodyweight but my legs were...meh...thin. When I started hitting sets of 30-40 or 50 I added mass to the quads. A sprint cyclist is channeling max intensity PLUS high volume (lots of reps).

          I think the fact he doubles 500 with a close stance, and 460 for 10, also helps a lot :P

            ^^this!!

            Remember, sprint cycling is his SPORT...NOT exclusively how he trains...

            Another example of a quad dominant sport would be speed skaters.

            Guaranteed, heavy squats are a HUGE part of their resistance training regime.

            Unfortunately, the specifics of both these sports leave the upper body WAY UNDERDEVELOPED because it's undesirable for maximum competitive advantage but creates a drastic imbalance in the body.

            I wonder how this imbalance affects them in their daily life...or the longevity of their health later in life...just curious.

            Unless a man undertakes more than he can possibly do, he will never do all he can.

            Unfathomable progress is the result of consistent, daily steps toward a single goal

                  Sorry for the confusion. Never said "raw" squat. I did an equipped 485 @ 160lbs. Raw was 455 @ 175. Legs were not impressive in either scenario. Bigger now once I added many many more reps. Not nearly as "strong" though.

                    I joined my first gym just over 30 years ago. I was 16 and that was the minimum age to join. I was greeted by a female trainer who worked at the gym who had quads bigger than just about every guy in the gym. Chris Porter. She was a speed skater who took up bodybuilding. This was 1984. Check out her quads after only a few years of lifting. These stumps were built on speed skating. (BTW I have no idea what happened to her and why she didn't pursue bodybuilding...she was a beast)

                        Well guys I do believe it's mostly genetics.

                        Back when I was a gymnast we were told NOT to train legs... I got big legs anyway from jumping and running while my upper-body stayed behind. (Trying to find a pic)

                        A good example that might fit this discussion better:

                        https://instagram.com/p/0-qHOMrMVf/

                        Flex Lewis' brother. Professional Rugby player, more than likely trains like his fellows team mates, but he has big ass quads. The same could be said of Robert Forstermann. If there's a benefit to squatting that transfers to speed cycling, you can bet your ass other cyclists are doing it... but only Forstermann gets to be quadzilla.

                        I'm not saying speed skating and cycling won't obviously tax your quads, but I do think genetics are a good part of it.


                        EDIT: Shit, this is comming from a guy that doesn't believe in genetics, fuck.

                          Another way of saying the same thing applied exclusively to bodybuilding is that while a lot of people could try to train legs like Tom Platz, very few can get close to having quads like his.
