    Are you looking for size or high squat weights? There are some powerlifting programs that will increase your poundages by a lot but aren't high enough in volume to add any mass.

    Also remember that "only the mediocre are always at their best." What this means is, if you go try to squat your max every time you squat, you will never make any progress. Your body improves by starting low and going a little higher each time. Say your max is 200... if you squat 200 every day, it will never increase. Start at 150 one workout, then 160, etc., and over time build up to 200... you might hit 205 that time around. Then take a little time off and start over at 155 maybe. I'm simplifying it, but that's how you do it.

    You have to learn to love going deep on teh squats if you want big numbers and tear drops. Quads should also get their own day of the week.
