    Question Sets and Reps for Leg Extensions

    Trying to grow quads with squats and leg extensions. Squat routine is going great but leg extensions suck. Iím currently doing 8 working sets of 9 reps at 40 Kg for leg extensions but seem to have plateaued. Should I go heavier for less sets and reps or back off weight and up reps and sets?

    I Aim for these reps and adjust weight to get:

    1st set 10 reps
    2nd set 8 reps
    3rd set 6 reps
    4th set 4 reps

    I donít fuk about with 20 reps or more, just get sore for nothing.

    if You can maintain 40kg for all 8 sets at 9 reps then it's safe to say that the weight is too light.
