Thanks, I've been working them particularly hard over the last 5 months. Here's a typical leg day for me:
Quads: Barbell Squats, Leg Lifts
Hamstrings/Glutes: Lying Leg Curls, Weighted Lunges
Calves: One-Leg Calf Raises, Angled Calf Raises
I follow MAX-OT training principles and really go heavy for my 3 working sets on each exercise. I also attempt a 1-rep max squat between my warm-up/acclimation sets and my working sets.
I do deviate a bit from MAX-OT for my calves and weighted lunges. My calves and glutes seem to respond better to slightly
less heavy weight but increased reps (about 10-14).
Of course getting that nice quad separation is mostly a function of low body fat levels.
