    I've been doing the same leg routine for about 4 months now with decent progress, But lately it seems the gains have really slowed up and Id like to change it up.. Whats everyone doing for legs?

    I got this routine from a friend

    Currently I'm doing

    4 sets of squats 8-10 reps
    5 sets of leg presses @ 15 reps every set with 30 seconds of rest between each set. I absolutely hate this part..
    Seat leg extentions @ 4 sets 8-10 reps.
    Reverse leg curls @ 4 sets, 8-10 reps.

    Yes, I know its a reletively short workout and I finish it all in about 30 minutes, with a partner... :o

    as far as reps are concerned.


    I'd do:

    Leg ext's: 3-4 Sets, 8-12 reps
    Squats: 4-6 Sets, 10/8/6/6 (finish with some heavy triples)
    Leg press: 4 Sets, 8-10 reps
    SLDL: 4 Sets. 5-10 reps


    don't be afraid to lift heavy and don't be afraid to take a couple minutes between heavy sets.

    I try to not get caught up in the wieght and concentrate on form, etc. I hurt my back a couple years ago trying to squat more than I should have...and I definetly dont want that again.

    Looks like pretty damned good progress to me.

    Why not go for a 5x5 routine?

    exactly like Maine said. More weight, less reps, more rest if you need it.

    I like Maine's suggestion..

    And I'm a big fan of SLDL's....

    And try to switch things up every 4 weeks or so.. don't wait 4 months..
