I’m focusing more on squat strength than leg size now. I was doing high volume twice a week very similar to what’s in the “Mountain Dog Legs” article. Now I’ve scaled back the volume and work them every three days, alternating between:
High volume leg curls (MD style)
Back squat (parallel) working up to a good double, then a back-off set of ten.
Trap bar squats, focusing on VM’s for 3 sets of 15-20
Same leg curls
Bottom-up squats from 8" above parallel for a big single. These will make your max squat weight feel light.
Leg extensions, again focusing on VM’s
The most important thing is to avoid failure on low-rep work at all costs. A double at 90% works like magic. I hit 335 easy last night. 3 weeks ago I hit 315, and even though the weight’s going up, it feels lighter every time. As soon as I get to the point where I don’t think I could get 3 at that weight, I’ll recalculate and drop back down to 85% of the new max and start working my way back up
