    Overtraining...

    I worked out my legs on Thursday and I can still barely walk without HUGE pain in my legs. No way I can work them out again till next week.

    Just work them out till you can't walk anymore then even more. You won't want to do them 3x a week.

    I worked legs 3x on the Bill Starrs program, all 5x5, Heavy on Monday, light Weds, and Heavy Friday.

    I NEVER got any sort of Doms, but mainly because its low rep squats... but i made tremendous progress for a while before i stalled..

    But you might feel the effects of that leg routine if you do it 3x a week, all with high intensity, your gonna be drained quickly. At least on my 5x5 wednesday was a light day.

    Overtraining? My legs would get sore for 2-3 days after doing squats, after finishing smolov squat cycle my legs don't get sore squatting 3x a week.

    lol the opposite is true, which is the reason why you can get away with higher volume on your upper body than your lower body.

    How long you've been working at it to know it's working great? Assuming it could be newb gains because of your weight.

    this sounds so wrong to me. I would look at your diet or rest if this is happenign to you. I usally do my 1rm once a wekk too, it sits at 425 right now. otherwise its this 3 times a week:

    squat 10x4 @315
    leg press 10x4 @615
    calf raises 20x4 weight varies.

    i never get doms, i also run and play sports during the week.

    OP must not be training at full intensity in each workout? That's the only way I can see one would be able to train a body part three times a week and still progress unless "pharmaceutical help" is being employed.

    I train a body part once a week. I hammer that body part into submission when I train it though. Training this way, there's no way I can do that body part again more than once a week. Especially a body part like legs.

    This will be my upper body routine

    reps 5-12 (on average about 5-6)

    In this order, I do this routine anyway, 2 times a week though

    3 sets of dumbell rows
    3 sets of weighted dips
    3 sets of dumbell shrugs
    3 sets of dumbell press
    3 sets of curls

    I train with intensity, I.E the last rep of the last set is very hard to get

    why do you have to train them at full intensity every workout? its ironic that you say you would need "pharmaceutical help" when in fact this would be the perfect routine for the natural body builder. rippetoes, 5x5, HST are just a few examples of full body routines that have been proven time and time again to work especially well for drug free trainers. science has also backed it up for as long as they've been doing scientific studies on training.

    I can only train legs once a week as I'm sore for about 3 days after.

    I disagree. The legs are only designed to push, they are very simple compared to something like your arms and shoulders. Many Oly lifters can get away with squatting to max and doing volume 14/wk. High reps is a bit of a different story but you can still gain size doing frequent low rep squats.

    How long before this is over training?
    SLDLs will be the thing that kills you in the routine. It's a single muscle lift and it's on the lower back which is one of the longest to recover.

    Just work them out till you can't walk anymore then even more. You won't want to do them 3x a week.

    Legs 2-3x per week FTW.

    Soreness is non-existent when higher frequency is implemented for legs.

    the complexity of a muscle has nothing to do with its recovery ability. when it comes to squats and deadlifts, the sheer amount of muscle being used and the impact it has on the CNS is far greater than doing dumbbell curls or fly's. you can always get away with doing more volume with smaller muscles because your body can recover much faster from them as opposed to doing squats and deadlifts and most other lower body exercises.
