ok so a friend of mine needed some pics to use as an outline for a graffic she is making for a fire extinguisher company. so i reluctantly agreed.. anyway i thought i would show some pics and see what you guys thought. i know my legs are lacking.. i am trying... i didnt work them for a long time so they are far behind. i know they are not the best pics but all i have ... and jsut for some stats:
age 24

You look big for 6'0 179. Do you have any legs?

I agree with the others: hit those legs hard. I have 20lbs on you, and 15 of that is probably in the legs. Your upperbody looks great.

What's your leg routine?

well for tha last month or so i have been on a 5/5 routine... everything i do i have done like this

1st set 12-15 (warm up)
2nd -6th set i do 5 reps with a weight where i fail at 5 or need help
7th set is lighter weight till failure around 10-12

so i do legs the same.. i do the fallowing exercises
squats
hack squats
seated leg curls or laying leg curls
seated leg extensions
seated or 45* calf raises
and finally db lunges across the gym.. 15 steps there and 15 back 3 times

if there is something more i can do let me know.. i some times do sldl as well.. i know i could easily gaine 10-15 in my legs... i guess its jsut hard my upper body has a big head start( due to my own ignorance and laziness)

Okay, well, since you're doing legs twice a week (so do I, it's a good plan), why not do a heavy quad, light ham day, and a heavy ham, light quad day like I do?

For quad day, I'll do heavy squats and heavy leg press (low foot placement, to hit quads), followed by 3-4 higher rep sets of leg curls OR good mornings, OR leg press with high foot placement. Sometimes, I'll do supersets of the high-foot-placement leg press with leg curls.

For hamstring day, I'll do heavy RDLs and leg press with high foot placement, followed by EITHER 3-4 sets of walking lunges OR supersets of sissy squats with seated leg extensions.

For calves, I've been pausing at the bottom as per Lyle McD's advise on lagging bodyparts (http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=172), and it's been the BOMB.

You'll HATE me for telling you, but they really are the best this way.

Perhaps do the seated calf work on one leg day, the standing on the other leg day.

or SLDLs. ;)

(I mean in addition to what Built recommends)

Or SLDLs, yes, of course.

Or GHRs, if you have one at your gym.

some good exercises. i wouldn't do the glut-ham raise on the floor, that would kill my knee caps!

also i'd pick either romanian dead or good mornings but not both. they are similar movements that differ only in torque point/lever-arm distance
