Tom Platz as being the man who changed leg day forever. He was legendary for his workout intensity.
Tom Platz enjoyed squatting with 225 pounds for ten minutes straight. That was his style and the reason he created such massive and striated quads. High volume training was the main stay for Platz. Leg curls and leg extensions were performed at 60 rep increments…yes sets of 60, talk about blood flow.
How many people do you know who is able to do that? I can’t think of any.
The following video surfaced a few months ago. It appears that Golden Eagle is still paying attention to training his legs and not slowing down. Tom Platz may not have any Mr. Olympia titles but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t a force to be reckoned with – especially when it came to the legs department.
Tom Platz still knows how to pound a few squats out like a real Quadfather.
