    Lets get a leg thread going

    I have to tell you. Legs are not my favorite. Each time leg day rolls around I find myself trying to make up excuses why I shouldn't go heavy today or trying to skip lunges (ouch, those hurt but produce great results)

    I'm sure some are sick of their workouts and maybe need ideas for new ones.

    Can everyone list what they do on their leg days. We can all compare and learn from it.

    For instance this is what I will be doing today:

    leg extensions (warm ups)
    squats 5 sets 10-12 reps
    leg press 3 sets (feet wide apart 10 resps/superset with feet close together 10 reps)
    lunges 3 sets 20 reps
    leg curls

    as you see this is very basic. I need to add some FIRE into my next training.

    Any ideas for whom ever reads this thread?

    LETS DO IT!!!!!!!

    Things you can try:

    Unilateral leg press
    Front squats...if you can do them correctly
    Stagard Lunge/Squats...these may have a real name but I don't know what it is, lol!
    Try adding in some giant sets...I like Hacks/Leg Ext/Weighted Chair Squats

    Add in things like drop sets, this can be done easily with leg press

    Try mixing in some lower rep sets in there, will mean more wieght but will be a good stimulant for the muscles.

    Leg Extension Murder

    After all presses and lunges finish with leg extensions. I've killed everyone with this.
    Start at the top plate which feels super light and do 3 reps. Keep going plate by plate doing just 3. The heavier you go you'll feel lactic acid burning. Just make a fist and pound it out o your legs but keep going. No rest just 3 reps plate by plate. Soon as you can not do 3 take whatever weight you have and do half of it and keep repping out.
    Then when failure hits go to the top plate that felt so light when you started.
    It wont feel so light. Then rep out again.
    Then when you fall off the machine stand up and do sissy squats without locking the knee to keep all pressure in the quads.
    Try this i'll bet you Like it(I mean hate it)

    how do we feel about Super Sets when it comes to legs?

    Also, are your post workout drink little different on leg days? do you mix bit more carbs in?

    i prefer drop sets with legs and use emphasis workouts as opposed to supersets, and yes i add some extra protein and carbs to the PWO drink for legs

    ham emphasis day
    6 sets of squats
    4 sets straight leg deadlift
    4 sets leg press
    4 sets leg curl

    quad emphasis

    6 sets of squats
    4 sets leg press
    4 sets hack squat
    4 sets leg extension


    my workouts change depending on what heads i want to hit on that day or what is lacking, this is just what i've done the last couple weeks, i also incorporate

    front squats
    smith squats
    walking lunges
    half deads
    etc..

    all exercises are done with a full ROM and a controlled decent, pause at contraction point and controlled explosion

    drop sets are doubles, meaning two drops in weight
