    I think it was Super Squats but I can't remember. Internet search is in progress however :)

    Well, what do you suggest TBM? I know a wider stance puts you at risk for exploding your kneecaps into orbit, but as people have mentioned one can do more weight with a wider stance. I've started doing them closer together. I dropped off about 100 lbs to get myself used to the new movement. I think I feel stronger with them closer together than I do if they're further apart. Most of my buddies have said to me that getting used to a closer stance will help you get stronger overall.

    No luck on the Internet but I'll see if I can dig up Super Squats and get back to you on that.

    tom platz used to do all manner of angles and methods on legs and he had the first set of freaky legs in bodybuilding. it is important to note that he did use "creative recovery methods" (read: drugs), which would allow for him to blast his legs without overtraining as quickly. in addition, he also stretched the hell out of his legs.

    dr. squat also recommended doing leg exercises with variability.

    Hey guys, both of these studies clearly indicate that having a wider, more stable stance will allow for greater force generation for the same amount of muscle activation.

    Like the commercial says, "Wider is Better".

    Which is an utterly moot point as far as exercise goes.

    Now, performance in the "field" is another matter. If, say, you need to lift someone off the ground for some reason, by all means...go wide. It'll make things easier.

    Weight lifting is not about making mechanical achievements easier in the gym. It's supposed to be a safe and demanding stimulus only.
