    I agree squats first
    deep hack squats
    no disrespect to ms bev but lunges are better for carving in detail once youve got mass..yeah i know they absolutley kill your legs but i dont think theyre very good for mass..

    Re: Best order for leg workout

    Compound exercises (Exercises that use more than one muscle) are better to start out with than exercises that focus only on one muscle (forgot the specific name of these type of exercises ).

    Squats work over 250 muscles. Do squats first, followed by leg presses, so that your quads are already pumped. Next do Hams, followed by calfs.

    For example:
    1. Squats (compound)
    2. Lunges (compound)
    3. Leg press (compound)
    4. Ham/Quad specific exercise
    5. Standing calf raise

    Thats usually what I do for legs.

    How the hell does a muscle know what a "mass exercise" is? Please explain this "carving in detail" theory.

    From
    Compound + lots of weight exercices
    to
    specific + less weight exercices
    If you don't shut your fucking mouth, I will kill you.

    Sport, truth, like art, is in the eye of the beholder. You believe what you choose and I'll believe what I know.

    bro your a pain in the ass!!! if you can put on mass with lunges than go ahead and do them i dont care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you offer absolutely nothing except post when you find something that you disagree with..how about offering what works best for yourself instead of needling others that make suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!!! so to you squats and leg extensions will yield the same reults since the legs cant tell the difference???
