Weds is leg day for me.

Squats : 2 x 6-8 reps
Hack Squats : 2 x 6-8 reps
Leg Curls : 2 x 6-8 reps
Straight Legged Deadlifts : 2 x 6-8 reps
Standing Calve Raises : 4 x 10 reps
Crunches : 4 x 8-10 reps

Whatever weight gets me to failure on the 6th or 7th rep. Spotter helps me "cheat" on the 8th, but I'm carrying most of the weight.

I guess i must be legpressing differently from you guys.. because when i was doing 1000lbs legpress for reps.. i was deep squatting 600lbs for sets of 6... i dont know how you guys are legpressing 1000+ lbs but cant squat shit.
no offence to you john.. its just a generalisation

I can squat 750. I choose not to because it is too hard on my back an shoulders. I would do more heavy loads if my gym had a hack squat.... That is why I hit the free weight leg press so hard.

I just started with legs and am still trying to get strong.

Squats: 135x8, then 3 sets @ 265x8
Leg extensions: 3 sets @ 210x8 (I think it is a Life Fitness machine)
Leg curls: 3 sets @ 210x8 (Life Fitness)
Calve raises: 3 sets @ 310x8

I know i'm weak

Guess that explains it ! Im only 182 at 5' 10" with 7 percent fat and I hit 405 10 times in the middle of my squat set , but 725 seems like alot.

we change our workout weekly.. but heres the basics

some sort of leg press- warm up x20, 15, 12, 10 or more if we feel sometimes its a few more reps... weight differs

hack squats-15,12,10 will do more reps.. depends on how i feel

one leg leg press-either cybex or leg press machine-15,12,10

quad set-just like a superset.. just a couple more exercises. no rest til after the last exercise..
seated leg curls-15,12,10
adduction-15,15,15
abduction-15,15,15
leg extension-15,12,10

usually do calves on chest days but sometimes do some extra on leg day..
