My leg training
I need more mass(much more!!) in my legs. What do you think about this training:
1)Sled Hack Squat(full): 1xFault(with 2 dropset)
2)Leg Extension: 3xFault
3)Stiff Leg Deadlift: 3xFault
4)Leg Curl: 3xFault(forced reps)
5)Leg Press(90º): 2xFault(one series focus on hams and one focus on quads)
6)Standing Calf Raise: 3xFault

no regular squats??? you're missing the king of all leg exercises......hack squats are not a natural movement....stick w/ free weight HEAVY squats....that'll put some mass on...

If you're looking to add serious mass on any body part, your training on that day should be based on a heavy compound movement. I would replace hack squats with normal squats for a minimum of 5 working sets.
Add some seated calf raises to hit your soleus which you are neglecting.

(2 light warm up sets of 4-6reps then full out on everything) Leg extensions
1 set of each to TOTAL failure.

I wouldnt rely on these two exercises personally, even if i was walking around in someone elses body. I like to actually feel my hammies working hard. Ive found that a version of romanian deadlifts using dumbells is the only free weight exercise i can do for any kind of stretch without stressing my back. I do those and seated hamstring curls.

stiff legged deads kill my hams also
i find that hamstring curls don't do **** for me, even when i'm doing the whole stack, stiff legged deads though...my hams will be sore for a week

Attenuate the eccentric action on leg curls and you'll get sore. Stiffs make you sore because it is an eccentric muscle action.

Hack squats are primarily used to get definition to your legs. Feet narrow on hacks will define your outer quads, will get the sweep look. First you have to have enough muscle to get definition so for now i would stick with the free weight compound movement that the regular squats provide. Remember if done correctly your hamstring and glutes are also gonna get hit pretty hard on these.

the only way to put on good size to the legs are deadlifts and squats all free weight those two will put on great size i love squats to death even though im not very strong in them.

I hate squats.. I have horrible form.... I can't do Sh1t... I hate them... I think they are the worst exercise for my back... but I'm gonna try and work into them... heavy squats, leg press, and hack squats... time to get beefy..

if youre looking for mass in calves hit them from differnet angles. I started hitting my calves by pointing my toes in and then pointing them out instead of the straight up and down and what a difference it had made in calf development.
