I probably take one of the most convoluted approaches to my leg workout. LOL, but I enjoy it.

Monday Hack Squat - Wendler 531

Tuesday and Thursday Farmers Walk: I have 2 40# thick handle dumbbells that I carry around the baseball diamond. base to base. I came up with this from Hepburn progression. Laps increase as ...
4444
5444
5544 and so on until I hit 7777
So it would be 4 times without stopping x 4.

Wednesday Back Squat: 20 reps - when I hit 20 without stopping I increase weight 10#'s. This is a slow approach I believe will give my back time to strengthen.

Friday Leg Press: Done at end of workout for Cardio. Done with a Tabata timer - As many reps as possible in 20 seconds - rest 10 seconds holding weight at full extension - repeat for a total of 8 minutes.
