    When do you do legs?


    I've currently been doing legs at the end of my week, but im going to go back to doing it first training day of the week. Its the hardest group on my body both mental and physical so I like being really refreashed. I havent done legs the last two weeks just because ive been so tired by the end of the week.

    Wednesday and Sunday. Eat more if you're feeling sluggish and take some EC ~30-45 minutes prior to training.

    I train my legs twice per week as they seem to respond better to higher frequency. Quads and Hammies on Monday Thursday

    I usually do mine at the end of the week for the simple fact that I'm on my legs all day and walk several miles at work. Weekends give me some time to recuperate before Monday.

    Yes, because it is the largest muscle group and takes a great deal of energy when you are hitting the work heavy.
    I do squats and deads usually twice per week. If I am hitting squats with hard near max effort, I dial back the deads and vice versa if it is deadlift day.
    Since I split the W/O's into chest, shoulders, some assistance///and legs, back on another, my leg days always keep changing thru the ongoing weeks. Not selling pressing short at all, but I probably put my biggest efforts into these days, as I feel heavy leg and back work (hitting the largest muscle areas) aids in growing and keeping the entire body in the absolute best shape.

    But bad for productivity if you're walking around like an old man.

    My body is generally shot the day after a heavy deadlift session. CNS is fried, and trying to do much of anything that requires good CNS activation the following day is pretty futile. Usually I reserve the day after deadlifting for some metcon swimming or yoga.

    My forearms and CNS are cooked after heavy deads, I agree with you and Zir. I like to recover before I add more load and stress.
