Leg placement

Leg placement can make a huge difference in the gym and on the stage
 Legs are the one body part that can separate you from other competitors.  They are probably the most under trained muscle group in the gym.  One reason why is because they take a totally different mentality to train.  No one ever asks "let me see your quads" or "how much do you squat" when your walking around.  So one thing I try to do to keep things interesting when training legs is vary my foot and leg placement.  I do this through different exercise variation, such as wide stance and narrow stance squats.  Doing so can place more of an emphasis between your quads, hamstrings and glutes aswel as help push your physique to the next level.
Today, Tara and I took up the squat racks.  We kept a fast pace with a focus on depth and rep speed.  Overall really happy with how this one rolled and here's how it went....
