    im not the most experienced lifter, but almost every source reccomends 4 *6 instead of 3 * 10. thats what ronnie coleman reccomends and does himself. and make sure you do leg press first, you should always do ur compund muscle exercise first, i.e. squats or leg press

    go with what flexgolf said, compound movements first unless you're doing preexhaustion which i don't think you're doing

    South Jersey and HATING I
    Everyone has a workout and everyone will give you different ideas, I was doing what Big T was doing for a while...
    20 x 135 /225/ 15x 275 315x15 365x10/12 405 x 8/10
    I would do that for press/hack/extensions romandian deads/curls..
    Now I'm trying Dorians ideas or a modified H.I.T.
    bike 10mins then leg extension 2 warm up sets for 20 and 15 then 1 max till failure, by your 2nd set at 15 your legs are swole! it's all very slow methodical FORM 1ST movements.
    Squats (very slow and VERY low) = 135 -20, 225- 15 , 315 - 12, 365 - 8(failure)
    press 3 sets 2 warm up 1 failure
    hacks 3 sets 2 warm up 1 failure

    Rom. Deads 3 sets 2 wu 1 failure at 225 or so
    curls 2 wu 1 failure
    standing calf 3 2 wu 1 fail.

    I've noticed in the week or so since I've started very very exhausting and wore workouts. It's great! I'll do this for 2 or so months then revert back to what Big T's doing and then move back to H.I.T. cycle my workouts for and destroy my fibers!

    I'm pretty interested in what you guy's are putting up on this one. My legs have been a big sticking point for me so I've backed off upper body a bit to focus on the legs. Been hitting them twice a week for almost a year now with some pretty good results.

    1. 15-25 mins run for warm up
    2. Squats 215/15, 315/10-12, 375/8-6, 404/6-4
    every other week I do squats "out of the hole" dead bottom to start but I can't go as heavy, legs give out around 300.
    3. leg press 3 sets
    4. Step ups holding DB's in each hand. 65lbs/10, 70/10, 75/10.
    5. leg ext. 3 sets

    I switch things around each week and I keep the rest breaks under a minute, except for squats. I hit ham's on the second workout.

    The Gym-aka my garage :-)
    I do half squats superseted with horizonal leg press. I hurt my back doing sqauts (full) about a month ago and have been reluctant to do them ever since.

    I still don't feel as good as doing full squats though. My problem is I think that I can just get that one more squat, and thats when my back gives out. I get half way up and instead of quitting I keep going.

    It suck having a bad back.
