    Ok so, here's my confession!

    I've been lifting for over 10 yrs. now and for the first 8 have neglected legs other than a casual fling with some light squating and leg curls and extensions.

    I'm looking for advice on how to build strong, thick legs quickly.

    Currently, I'm hitting:
    Squat - 4 sets 8 reps
    Leg press - 4 sets 6 reps
    Leg curls - 3 sets 8 reps
    Leg ext. - 3 sets 8 reps
    Calf raises - 3 sets 10 reps

    Thanks!

    Glad to see you want to convert from your Loser ways

    Do only 2 sets per exercise.

    Do extensions first to pre-exhaust quads and allow them to fail before yo' ass.

    Depending on your rep range - use what works best for you [if you know what that is] and the rest seems fine.

    working legs will help the rest of your body development as well.
    i have been experiementing a bit in this area, find the exercises which result in progression (as paul stagg says progression is the key)

    Yeah, that's an elite thing.

    P.S. I just deleted my post by mistake.

    That reminds me of a guy I saw today when I was doin cardio. He walked out of our school weight room. He had some nice mass on his upper body, probly about 17-18 inch arms, 48 or 49 inch chest, yet my calfs were about twice the size his and his quads were smaller than mine too! bwahahahahahaha...lmao

    Oh, and I agree with the other guys sarid. You need to lower those sets by about 6 or 7 so you have about 7 or 8 sets for legs. Then hit some calves and that will be plenty.

    He must have been small if you were bigger than him...
