I remember reading that they were last because they are the hardest. After u do ur squats ur gonna be ready to go. Dante had reasoning behind the exercise order. If u go over to intense muscle, u can find just about anything u would want to know about dc.

If you look at that particular day, you notice the order of the workouts go from easy to hard, as well as from simple or single joint exercises to complex, compound exercises. What goes on is a few things, you're warming up your CNS as well as warming up the rest of your body. It really helps you ready up for the intensity required for the widowmaker.
On a personal note, I find the pre-exhaustion leg work actually helps me hit heavier weights, stronger. I don't know why, but it happens.

Thanks ill give it a shot. I have always hit squats first and never thought of priming cns for exhaustion.

People always say the order is backwards but lets think about it logically. LEts face it biceps and forearms is an easy workout and will have ZERO effect on your leg workout. Not think about doing HEAVY squats, HEAVY widowmakers then SLDL heavy. . . ok now go do standing long bar curls. . . F THAT I cant even stand up after my DC leg workouts never mind do standing curls. It may seem weird at first but its really set up great. DC is a great program and you will see great results
