    Question about Quad Training


    Howdy
    Here's my leg workout, I train them once every 6 or 7 days

    Squats x 4
    Deadlift x 4
    Hack Squat x 4
    Hamstring Curl x 4


    Do I need to add Leg Extensions into the mix for Quads or am I getting enough Quad work from the squats, etc? I am trying to gain mass right now. As it is, I can hardly walk for 4 or 5 days after this workout. LOL. I definatley don't want to overtrain.

    THANKS

    Its more about weights + intensities than about how many exersizes you need to do squats alone are fine for a while. Thats why its handy to follow a specific laid out by trainer plan. Whether its Max-OT, HST, GVT, Body for Life or whatever, at least there is a plan to specifically follow. Take notes too! as specific as you can. Thats the most underused piece of equipment in most gyms, a notepad


    I think its best to shift your specific exersizes around fairly frequently, like every 6 weeks (the timespan is up to you). So swap the squats for leg extensions in 6 weeks, then 6 weeks later switch it back. Same goes for anything really, do tricep kickbacks and close grip pushdowns for 6 weeks then do lying tricep extensions and dips for 6 weeks and switch back. GVT is recommended for only a 30 day span...

    right on.
    I take notes of each exercise I perform, weight, reps, etc. I walk around with a three ring binder. I am doing this workout that I downloaded from bodybuilding.com. It is a 4 day w/o doing one body part per week. I usually do the cycle every 6 days instead of 7.
