    Looking for good legs and back workout.

    Hi all, i'm looking to change up my legs and back routine, have done a bit of research splitting up the muscle groups but i think it now involves too many exercises, what do you think?

    QUADS:

    Back squat
    Machine leg extension
    Prisoner squat

    HAMSTRINGS:

    Machine leg curl
    Kettlebell straight leg deadlift
    Good mornings

    GASTROCNEMIUS:

    DB calf jump
    Alternating seated calf raise

    Glutes:

    Deadlifts
    BB overhead squat
    DB front squat

    LATISSIMUS DORSI:

    T-bar row
    Single arm DB row
    Chin up's
    BB bent over row
    BB side bend

    Thats the revised workout, a lot the exercises in there i haven't tried before so looking forward to it, but is it too many exercises?
    Any thoughts and advice is welcome, thanks.

    I'm not following you here. Is this your week's routine, or what?

    What is your goal?
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    Legs and back aren't a good pairup, especially for size. Too many overlapping exercises for the two largest muscle groups in your body. They should have as many days between training them as possible.

    Here's a much more appropriate routine:
