Well I train from home so only have an olympic barbell and squat stands, plus I hate machines anyway and only want to train for an hour, I've always felt that anymore than an hour is overkill. What's a leg day like for you synny?

Depends on what kind of torture my trainer wants to put me through... usually warmup with leg extensions and TKE, then some form of squat, 2 forms of lunges, step ups, 3 way calf raises and prone leg curls. We mostly do body weight, dumbbell or free weights cause he doesn't have all the machines

I personally love the 6-10 range myself :) means I can go heavier
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I used to do a similar thing...

WEEK 1: 10-15 REPS
WEEK 2: 8-12 REPS
WEEK 3: 6-10 REPS
WEEK 4: 1-5 REPS

Worked great, hit some PB's and it covered all bases really :D
