    why do my legs always feel tired?

    For the last few weeks I feel like my legs are always tired. They're not sore, but just feel tired mainly my calves... I do work full time ~8 hrs/day standing and walking around. I only train my legs once per week during one of my days off. Here is leg training look like...

    Full Squats 4 x ~8
    Deadlifts 4 x ~8
    Leg Press 4 x ~10
    Leg Curls 4 x ~10
    Calf raises 4 x ~15

    you might be doing to much. i usually split my legs into twice a week but since you said you only have one day off try doing this:

    3 sets of full squats
    3 sets of deadlifts
    2 sets of leg press
    2 sets of leg curls
    2 sets of calf raises if your calves are still feeling tired, if not go back to 4

    For starters, you might consider working your calves on one of your other days, there really isn't a need to do them with your other leg exercises since they are essentially a seperate muscle/group from the rest of your legs.
    For a while my legs were also a bit too tired and sore after my legs day, so now I do them on a serperate day... seems to have helped me considerably.

    that would be enough to make my legs (especially my calves) feel tired, surprised you haven't had any shin splints...

    yeah that's what I'm planning to do, yesterday I went light on my leg exercises, 4 x ~8 of squats, 3 x ~8 deadlifts, & 3 x ~15 calf raises and there's a big difference on how they feel the next day...

    I'll try to break them down in 2 separate days as suggested, thanks!

    Same thing happened to me. I resolved the problem by stretching my quadriceps. The stretching somehow speeded the healing progress and I actually gained in muscular stamina and strength in my legs. I suppose you shoulf stretch your calves also.
