    Spanish and split squats are great exercises regardless
    You dont need much weight to reach failure, especially if you've never done them
    10 - 20kg in each hand

    Spanish squats are very similar
    I think he's talking about split squats above

    Been grafting in the garden since lockdown, ive put on a fair bit of size, filled out whatever since,diets less than average..i think high carbs might help my situation atm.
    Protein is very lowish, il just keep things same till gym opens.

    Yeah not bad like, ive lost half inch on arms which would be water mainly due to no gear and a bit on leg n lats..but i dont use much tbh and training along time too should hold alot...started using creatine last few days, deffo better muscle endurance, been doing alot of hiking up hills lately and the odd light workout with dumbells n band..

    Has the creatine improved your pumps at all?

    I’m getting shite pumps off the juice and it’s pissing me off now
