      I normally do like 40 mins cardio on cross trainer but on a setting that works legs aswell then I go into 3 sets off sqauts then leg press then maybe some lunges depending how I feel then some calfs I feel it but don't feel Im doing enough

      Well, if you don't feel like you are doing enough then your probably not, I know when my legs have had enough because I can hardly stand up lol

      Your doing too much, your just not doing it hard enough.Does one set of squats, leave you in a crumpled mess,gasping for breath, and such intense pain you long for death? Thought not.

      It's not how much you do it's how much effort you put into doing it. To be honest the phrase 'depending how I feel' doesn't suggest that you're committing yourself totally to this....

      What are you training for?

      Forget the cardio on leg day.

      I do front squat, then back squat, then hack squat then calf raise and there is no way im doing any cardio after that session.

      Ps my front squat is only low weight warm up for the back squat and i finish with higher volume hack squat, main focus goes on back squat 5x5

      Not picking on you in particular OP as 98% of the trainers I see in gyms don't train anywhere near hard enough. People do so love their comfort zone training....

      Your not doing enough.

      Sack the cardio, do BB squats 3 x 10, Leg Press, 3 x 12, Leg ext 3 x 10, SLDL 3 x 8, hamstring curl 3 x 10.

      Then giant set on calves (all excercises back to back, no rest) leg press calf raise 15 reps, standing calf riase 15 reps, seated calf raise 15 reps. Then rest 2 mins and repeat for another 2 circuits (3 total)

      That should do it (it does for me )
