    Not bad, but 25 reps for squats? Endurance?

    quads have a dissproportionate amount of slow twitch fibers compared to other bodyparts...this makes sense since your legs have to support you all day...and not just for short intervals. I know my legs did not make progress until I really started putting some pain into my leg workouts and adding in 20-30 reps squats and 100+ rep super drop sets on leg press. You don't know pain...until you do high rep leg days.

    sounds decent, might give it a shot...but where are the free squats... those are definately numero uno above leg press.

    I always do a few drop sets on my leg day and hit 20-30 reps on it, but I can't imagine not doing squats with a few low-rep heavy-weight sets.

    Might give it a shot though.

    I agree with you there...on squat days my working sets look like this...
    15 reps
    10 reps
    5 reps
    1 rep negative (15% higher than 1RM)
    1 rep negative (15% higher than 1RM)
    15 reps
    20-30 reps

    Then a few sets of leg extensions. Right now i'm working hams on a seperate day as I cannot workout my upper body since my shoulder is ****ing injured

    Yeah see you finish with a 25-30 rep set, those are the working sets here.

    I'll usually do:

    10 reps
    8
    8
    6
    6,8,10 drop set.

    Then leg press, lunges, and extensions.

    Good workout. Question: On your 1 rep negatives, are you coming down and resting the bar on the pins at the bottom of your descent? And on your final 15 rep set and 20-30 rep set, what percentage are you using in relation to your 10 rep set earlier in the workout?
    Thanks

    whoa this is a long time ago. Well back when i did that workout I was maxing about 350 on squat. So i'd use about 405 for a heavy negative... i'd just resist as much as I could and go down slowly til it hit the pins. Then I'd just let it rest there and I'd take of the weight and re-rack it. Then i used 225 for my 20-30 rep squats.

    Thanks for the feedback Str8flexed. I was going to try the negatives on the smith machine until I realized that the smith machine never did ANYTHING positive for my quads. No matter how heavy or what foot placement I used.
    Free weight squats it tis.

    that work out is good, but not from hell, try doing the bike for 5 min warm up, squats do 15 deep warm up, 10 , 8 , 6 , 4 , max. then move to the hack squats and do 4 sets, 10 , 10, 8 , 6. then do ur leg extensions and leg curls, then go outside and sprint 10 60 yard dashes. thats a leg work out that'll put some hair around ur niples.

    My sincere hope for you Jon is that when (or if) you mature, at some point you'll go back and read the drivel that you wrote and realize just what a punk you really were. Lots of luck with the whole maturing thing too, you're going to need it.

    That negative rep sounds really good. I am going to try that one tomorrow. Ive been doing bench tap squats which gives me more of a deep squat and ive noticed that its giving me a better workout. but i was only doing 8-10. Im going to try to higher reps and burn out my legs a little better. Thanks for the tips.
