      I would like to know if you think my leg day (once a week) is overkill and if so, why? I am training on AAS which is a factor that you should consider when you respond.

      My routine:
      Front squat warm up (just the bar)
      Back squat 5x5
      Deadlift 5x5
      Calf raises (leg press machine)
      Leg press machine
      Adductor machine
      Abductor machine
      Leg extension machine
      Leg curl machine

      Thank you for reading

      Leg Day Overkill?

      My legs are skinny like Mikado's, I had to take a year out from working them due to an ankle injury so I am throwing everything at them.

      Leg Day Overkill?

      Lunges used to really give my legs good shape, but there's too much ankle flexion for me to do that anymore. Maybe later on down the road I can reintroduce them.

      They used to give me gyp too, but my joints have become accustomed to them over time.

      As gay as they look, lunges are awesome.

      Leg Day Overkill?

      My leg day looks like this:

      Leg press 4 sets
      Front squats 4 sets
      SL deads 4 sets
      Single leg quad extensions 4 sets

      I'm hitting it twice a week at the moment and it seems to be working
