When comes to legs – Tom Platz is the king. He was legendary for his workout intensity.
He reports that while weighing less than 230 pounds, he squatted eight reps with 635 pounds and 52 reps with 350 pounds. On numerous occasions, he squatted for 10 minutes straight for more than 100 reps with 225 pounds.This might seem like hyperbole, if not the fact that Platz is seen in a video shot in 1992 squatting 495 pounds for 23 reps with his thighs going below parallel.
Check out this crazy and kind of funny footage of Tom and his gang from movie “Biceps business”. But don’t let the title fool you – you’ll be seeing a truly insane leg day workout. Just further proof that Tom Platz was truly the Quadfather.
