    How many sets of squats is enough on legs day?

    Ive been trying to get a good leg routine down for awhile now, without much success. I used to do 3 sets of squats and then a bunch of machines. I wanted to maximize my efforts so I realized squats are pretty much the best exercise you can do. I tried a bunch of other things like leg press but i cant find anything thats even close to squats as far as benefits and amount of time you have to do them. So anyway, right now I do 6 sets total of squats. Ill do 3 sets of 385 for 5-6 reps, then 330 for 8 reps. I have a small aerobics bench underneath me to let me know that im hitting good depth, and its about a foot and a half off the ground. So how many sets of squats is enough? I dont feel like im doing enough but i could be wrong? Should i do more...?

    It is relative to how much you are pushing yourself, so the weights you are using are not best indication per se. On my heavy day, I would do between 4-5 sets 3-5 reps and wishing the agony to stop, then if I'm feeling a bit crazy I might throw a 20 rep set to send me to the Morgue . If you are pushing yourself you will know when you just had enough.

    Every time raise the weights or reps. 1st week I did 3x5 of 80kg, the next week 4x6 of 80kg, now on my next leg day I'll probably raise the weight.
