    New Leg Routine

    I want to make a new leg routine; I feel its time for a change. My max squat has not increased in a while and I getting bored of my current routine.

    This is my old routine:
    squat 3*8,8,5
    leg curl 2*10
    leg ext. 2*10

    I wanted to do something like this:

    squat 2*8 or maybe 3*8,8,5
    sldl 2*8

    I need some advise what else I should add 2 sets of one more exercises. What are you opinions?

    i think if you add to sets at the beggining of the old workout and increase the sets of the rest of the excercises by 1 or 2 you will have some good muscular defined and BIG legs.this is what works for me actually.
    BTW for the boredom thing.you could do hack squats or lunges.

    I dislike leg curls, they're inferior to deads anyway I think .

    I would say a set or two of leg presses and you should be set. Maybe do a heavier set of squats first then a little lighter set second, so you dont get as bored with the same rep range. And obviously some calve work.
