    Squats last!


    Yea everyone. Not sure if anyone else has tried this but i have 2 times now and love it. I do...

    Leg pressfor 4 sets no lower than 8 max reps
    Leg extensions for 3
    hacksquat - feet high/ 2 set
    hamstring curls- 3 set 12+ reps
    Then squat for 3

    I dont know why but both weeks ive done this, i feel way more pumped that day and the next! I swear. I even lowered my carbs a bit today to make sure it wasnt that, its not.
    Somehow i love this. So im sticking with it for a bit.

    I still have enough gas in the tank for 3 sets of 185x10
    225x10 245x8 and i could go more but i choose to stop. I never sacrifice form for function. My max is 315 for 3-4 reps 3 months ago. So ima run with this style and then see if it helps any. If nothing else it never hurts toswitch it up...

    Anyone else do this? I know most are all about max effort squats so they do them first.

    I just started doing this again since switching to a mass routine. My last routine was more strength/endurance based, so I did them in the beginning.

    I'm squatting much less weight since they're at the end of my workout, but it's much better for hypertrophy.

    Try this leg routine. I tried it once. The key word there is 'once'.

    Leg Extensions: 4 sets of 8-12
    Hack Squat: 7 sets of 8-12 (after set 4, do a triple drop set)
    Leg Press: 3 sets of 10-12
    Squats: 3 sets of 8-12
    Leg Curl: 4 x 8-12
    1 Leg curl: 4 x 8-12
    Stiff Legged Deads: 3 x 10-12

    28 sets of torture. Did this sh*t once, never again. You get destroyed but its a helluva workout.
