    How many sets shoud I be doing for my legs?

    How many sets? I was in a rush to the gym because i fell asleep on my couch and only got a 20 min workout because they closed. Anyway i did 4 sets of front squats, 3 sets of single leg squats then 4 sets of calf raises.

    Was this enough to do some growth? Also, how many exersies should I be doing for my legs?

    On a normal day, I would usually do this

    Front Squat or Reg squat - 4 sets
    Single squats/ lunges - 4 sets
    Glut Ham Raises - 3 sets
    Calf Raises - 4 sets


    What else should I be adding? Thanks alot.

    answer to legs

    i believe legs should be trained with no mercy. i do leg presses 4 sets of 25 squats 4 sets of 15 seated extensions 2 to 3 sets of 40 and standing extensions 4 sets of 15 then i do lying leg curls 4 sets to failure then seated leg curls the same. i do not train calves on leg day too much stress i so calves on arm day. you should not be able to walk after ward and should be about to puke or puking. now i say you should not everyone is the same i dont reccomend doing this workout unless you are an advanced and leg training but if u want great size for comps then high reps, 4 sets and high intensity is right for you. check animal pak workout 4

    heh, a normal leg workout for me will consist of 5-7 working sets of back squats, 4 sets front sqauts, 6-7 sets leg press, 4 sets hacks, 5 leg extensions, 3 sets of db lunges and then i superset lying leg curls and standing leg curls 5 sets (also hit hams on their own day) then i'll do 30-40 mins stairstepper afterwards

    1 working set to maximum intensity and new muscle growth beyond your wildest high-volume dreams! (i'm a wacko HIT guy, but I personally do 2-3 working sets per muscle group, not 1.)

    seriously though, several sets for a couple key exercises (ahem, squats, hacks, legpresses), work em hard and you will be fine.
    If you think you can, you will.
    If you think you can't, you're right.

    This is what brought me from 25's on each side to 365 in less then 8 months.

    Squats 3x10 As heavy as you can for that ammount.
    Leg Presses 3x10 Heavy! Your last one you should barly be able to bring it up.
    Leg Extensions 3x10 VERY heavy
    Leg Curls 3x10 again same
    Sitting Calf raises 3x10 or less
    Standing Calf Raises 3x10 or less

    So pretty much its 18 Sets altogether. 6 Sets of big lifts and then 6 of isolated type.

    That also looks good. The only problem I see is the heavy leg extensions.
