          How do you typically structure your lower body sessions, tjoe?

            Lol, sorry I had to laugh!
            I switch up my routines like crazy! I've done some 5/3/1, did some westside, did some Russian volume stuff...
            Honestly at this point it really seems like I do the best when I just do my own thing.
            I have always been a big fan of working up to one all out set. Typically alternating higher reps one week with lower the next.
            I've done squats and deads on the same day and liked that a lot as it allowed the pc a full week of recovery.

              QUADS
              •Warm knees up with leg extensions
              •Barbell or squat machine squats. These alternate every week. Start off with 225 and work up to 405 for 8-10 reps the. Finish with 315.
              •Leg Presses--start out with 6 on each side and work my way up to 12/side and then down to 8/side for last set.
              •Hack Squat--start of with 3/side and finish with 6/side
              •Hacks and Leg presses alternate each week with the order they go

              HAMSTRINGS
              •Prone leg curls--4 sets
              •Seated leg curls--4 sets
              •Stiff leg dead lifts or good mornings for 4 sets
              I stop me....no one else does.

                I'm on the side of "not squatting due to medical reasons AND it not being as effective for me"

                I enjoy squatting… squatted tons in my 20s. BUt after a long time of squatting, I realized that my legs didn't get any bigger. I actually had people go up to the gym owner and complain "There's no way that guy is going to squat that weight with those legs". lol

                Nowadays though, I've gained a little bit of size on my legs, and that was from extension/curl pre-exhaustion, and hacks or press.

                I'll throw squats into the mix on occasion, just to check mobility, but they're not the core of my leg day.

                To add to all of this, I have a degenerative disk in my back that doesn't always respond well to pressure. Last week I was squatting.. and it felt great (link). The next day, and all over the holidays, my back was done like Christmas dinner.

                  only hack squats the last 4 or so years....barbell squats dont give the same quad stimulation...partially due to my lack of flexibility
                  Like all true bodybuilders I get my supplements from the manufacturer instead of a marketing company I get my supplements at www.truenutrition.com

                    Squats should be 85% of your entire leg workout.

                      I hit lowerbody twice per week - one day for explosiveness/speed, and the other for all out max. I do my speed work in three-week waves increasing the weight slightly each week. We switch the resistance types and the bars used per the Conjugate Method.

                      Typical speed day -

                      Box squat variation (varied bars and bands/chains)
                      8 warmup sets of two reps
                      6-10 work sets of two reps

                      Deadlift variation (lately we've been maxing out different types of pulls every speed day)

                      Hack squats and/or leg press
                      3-6sets using varied tempo, rep range, and utilizing multi-tier drop sets to failure.

                      3 heavy movements for back (usually 12 sets total, sometimes more)

                      Then either extensions/curls, hip ab-aductor or GHR/reverse hyper.

                      Typically I hit glute, lower and mid back on lower body days, and mid, upper and traps on upper body days.
