reminder, im speaking strictly from a bodybuilder point of view here, im about shape, size, and overall appearance...
sometimes its beneficial to do the most difficult exercises exhausted.
my last leg day went something like this (minus the intricate details that made it so horribly difficult and yack-a-licious)
1. hamstring curls
2. leg press
5. db deadlifts
6. hyper extensions
my legs were useless and still are. they were also on fire when i went to bed.
so i disagree that always starting with the hardest exercise is always the most beneficial. in fact, i usually start my leg workouts with my hamstrings pre-exhausted. Also doing something like a leg press or hamstring curls, or whatever before squats actually helps loosen you up and warm up the muscles for the big compound squat movement.
