    A lot of soccer players in the UK (and elsewhere) have quads almost the size of bodybiulders, do they lift weights to achieve this or is it possible to have huge quads just from soccer training?

    Thanks, sounds like good advice, but what about the number of exercises per bodypart, say chest for example; would you do 3-5 sets of one chest exercise, then 3-5 sets of a second chest exercise?
