That must be the biggest mistake. =)
Agreed!! You gotta love your leg day.

Exactly, you have got to learn how to love that taste of blood in your mouth and that stumbling walk between the squat rack and the drinking fountain =)

I will say this: if it's ever been painful to take a dump then you know how to train legs.

I just think if that's your approach, do 20 reps week in and week out, and add 5 lbs as often as safely possible. Like DC said, if you squat one day, front squat the next, then hacks squat, then leg press, by the time you get back to squat, you're right back where you were strength wise. Same goes for rep ranges. Pick one or two leg exercises, pick a set rep range, and stick with it for years. This is weight lifting, guys need to stop treating it like a new barbie that they can't wait to accessorize and dress up. The other day I overheard two guys say that a calf circuit would be fun. If by fun, you mean counter productive and blantantly homo erotic, then yes, it does sound like quite a bit of fun.
The stuff in red is just too funny. The rest of the post is just too true.

YES!!! Finally, somebody else gets it.

Donkeypuncher, you've had a couple of good contributions to this thread. I'm going to rep you, but I don't know which one to rep.

Only sticking to low reps.


I've found, that as much as I love low reps, my quads DID benefit a lot from higher rep sets thrown in. Widowmakers, high rep leg extensions, etc. Of course your training shouldn't SURROUND this, but it's good to keep it mixed up. Quads respond very well to higher rep training, I've found.
