    Do what works for you. I made my best gains, when I added leg presses, hack squats and leg curls. Squats are great. I still do them. But they don't build a uniform good looking leg for me- as the...

    Do what you enjoy doing. I'm a PUSH/PULL/LEG person. The thing I changes is the resistance- machine, barbell, dumbbells. I might go from free weight to cable, or use a machine for a few months....
