    Changing my leg workout.

    Due to some stagnation and injuries etc my leg workout is struggling. My squatting ability has began to suffer as over the last year i have gradually let my form slip. Now that im focusing on regaining decent form im not able to lift anywhere near as heavy. My leg workout was
    squats
    leg press
    front squats
    seated HS curl
    Romanian Deadlifts

    i was thinking of switching to
    Leg presses
    stepups
    squats
    seated HS curl
    Romanian deadlifts.
    This way ill have pre-exhausted my quads so i wont need to lift heavy for squats anyway.
    The only equipment in the gym is a cage, a leg press and a seated HS curl machine. Opinions on this routein would be much apreciated!

    If you are wanting to work on perfecting your squat form, squat first. What are the injuries you speak of?

    nothing serious. I strained my hip flexors recently. My hip hurts quite a bit and just feels weak and loose most of the time but i have gotten used to it.

    If those are muscle names for muscles used in hip flexion then they diddnt hurt when i did stepups today.

    They are, and if it feel alright, then i guess go for it, but i'd just recommend stayin away from that considering they were strained. JMO

    Yup they are part of the hip flexor region. The psoas connects the lower spine to the legs If I remember...

    yeah if you are concerned w/ your squat and its form i would do that first when u are fresh and go down even lighter in weight just to get the correct feel for it and once your form is back on track start stepping up the weight again
