Thread: Legs question????
05-27-2005, 12:39 PM #1
Ok guys here's my question How many reps and and sets should be done?
I was thinking like
Squats 4set 10-12 reps
Leg press 3 sets 10-12 reps(feet close together)
Leg extension 4 sets 10-12 reps
Leg Curl 4 sets 10-12 reps
Is that good amount of work for the hams, or do you guys think I should lay this out better

LOOK at your legs...
What area needs the most work?
Most likely (in most trainers), no offense, it's the hamstring.
3 exercises for quads really isn't necessary.
IMO...you only need ONE good exercise for quads (IMO squats...unless you've an injury)... and 1-2 hamstring movements
IMO cut down to:
Squats: 5 sets
Leg-curls: 4-5 sets
Stiff-leg-deadlift: 4-5 sets

Squats basically hits the hams to right?

BTW: if your hams AREN'T lagging... then one exercise per area would suffice:
Quads: Squats: 5 sets
Hamstrings: Leg-curls: 5 sets
The most important factor isn't the number of exercises...rather, it's the amount of intensity you can generate

Squats hit the hams..yes... to a more pronounced degree if you go below parallel

thank you for quick reply! I don't think really any part of my legs are lagging but I just want to make sure that I'm doing everything right. My main concern is that I want to get a great leg workout
