    extensions-10,8,8,6,
    hamstring curls-10,10,10,10
    calves-10,8,6 -10,8,6
    All going up in weight need help on last set. Im really trying to get the wheels rolling. They are not where they need to be.

    squats are legpress(sled) are same compound movement.

    i like to warmup with extensions, lunges and hams.

    then go into heavy squats, sled or hack squats.

    end with calves, jmo.

    reps look good.


    whatever works for you

    Agreed. The only time I do squats and leg presses is when I do my regular squat routine, followed by high reps of leg presses with light weight. So basically I just use LPs as a burnout.

    Imo that it way to much work done on the quads and not enough on the hams.

    warmup with these is this best bet because the knee is not designed for that type of tension or that angle of stress it was designed to support on a pressing motion such as squats or lunches... if you keep going heavy on LegExt the possibility of running into some serious knee complications down the road greatly increases... the legext is now primarely used for thereputic strengthing of the connective tissue.
