I have just moved over to the world of free weights from leg presses, etc, and this workout just kicked my *** today.
3x8 Good Mornings
3x8 Hack Squats
3x8 Standing Calf Raise
I was going to do 3 sets of hamstring curls and some ab work, but was just too cashed to do anymore. I couldn't even walk down the stairs without the railing.
Is this enough? My other 2 days are chest/shoulders and back (which include deadlifts).
More than enough. Any more would be overdoing it.
I am Ripper. Tearer. Slasher. Gouger. I am the Teeth in the Darkness. The Talons in the Night. Mine is Strength. And Lust. And Power!

usually when you do 5x5 with a compound excersize like squat you dont need to do anyother excersize with the same muscles, id take hacks out and keep the rest. but thats just me
I agree with nate, ditch the hack's...

I agree, ditch the hacks but I would add in a secondary glute/ham exercise like glute/ham raises or pull-thrus.
