    Honestly, like most people with a standout bodypart, my thigh sweep is just genetic. Im not saying I dont work hard or train like a beast to improve everything, but basically the same exercises as the next pro who has no thigh sweep. Now if I only had that same genetic response in my chest, Id be all set!

    I totally understand what your saying and it makes sense but I actually did drop a 45lb plate on my foot while unloading a leg press once and by the grace of god my toes happened to be in the air and when it hit my foot, it just kind of absorbed the blow without so much as a bruise and Im sure that would not be the case if I had nothing on my foot.

    I do believe that having a great outer sweep to your quads is a genetic thing.

    Dave Henry and Darrem Charles both have poor sweep, and I'm sure they have tried very hard to get one. I am also lucky like Jose - just had that shape from day one. It gives your legs an illusion of being much bigger. Cutler has said many times that people would be shocked if they knew what his quads actually measured. I'm sure they are not small of course, but they are probably not the 33-inch monster wheels most people assume them to be.

    As for a 'wannabe,' I have been competing since 1989 and have been working full-time in the bb industry almost 20 years now. I'm not a 'wannabe pro,' but I am part of this sport in my own weird way whether you like me or not.

    He doesn't like you cause you're black.

    And yeah, as far as thigh sweep goes, I think that's way more genetic than it is what you do in the gym. Doing narrow stance leg presses and hacks can help carve in some shape and definition, but I don't think it's going to blow your legs up to huge proportions, that just comes from adding overral mass.

    Jose, great shots and good luck in Tampa. I always enjoy your vids, and just like with Ron, I'm impressed that you can squat in Air Max's. I guess to you 315 feels like my 225 so that probably helps, lol. As soon as I put that third plate on for any squat movement I need flat shoes, a belt, the lights lowered, complete and utter silence from everyone in the gym, proper alignment of the planets and stars, etc....

    I'm the same way. I can't even listen to my ipod for heavy squatting. Every other exercise, I blast my ipod. For some reason, for squats I need absolute focus.

    Yeah but now you have people wearing those toe shoes, lol. My gym used to have signs up telling you to wear shoes, but they took those down and I always sq and deadlift barefoot with trainers around and even the manager and ownder have seen me doing it... I guess mine don't care. I am cautious with myself and others though.

    I was daydreaming one time and pulled a 45lb plate off the bench press forgetting there was a 5 or 10lb plate on the outside, lol, and it hit me right above my shoe and bruised and scraped the skin off it.

    I knocked a hammer off a ladder one time at work with boots on, and I was blown away how bad that little hammer hurt. Must have hit my toe just right.

    I guess if you drop a 45lb plate on your foot, a pair of sneakers isn't gonna ease the pain any more than if you were barefoot, but I think it would make a difference if a 5 fell on your foot. Also, you're just walking around in between so much equipment, I kick my feet on stuff all the time moving in and out of equipment, so I couldn't imagine being barefoot.
