    Because of back injuries I have to do squats mid workout. 1 warmup set and 3 working sets.

    That sounds brutal. you do iso shit as well?

    Nowadays, I can only do 4-5 then im done. Not sure if its because my gear dosages are just a fraction of what they use to be, or im just aging.

    I hit them after leg press, so my quads are usually jello after 4-5 sets. I also do a drop set on my last working set.

    On gear, I train legs 2x/wk, so I'll usually have another day where I'll knock out 6-7 sets of heavy squats.

    Highly variable depending on my program, the intensity, whether or not you count warm-up sets, and depending on whether you are looking at the entire week or within a given workout.

    I keep the sets pretty high, and I'm currently doing three different kinds of squats-Regular, fronts and high-bar. I don't do nearly as much weight compared to before lower back disc surgery a few years ago. I usually do around 12 sets of the three exercises and then some calf work on leg days. I like to train fast, with less than a minute between sets. Very different compared to how I trained a few years ago, but I'm starting to enjoy the different style.

    5 bulging disks with the usual neural/ spinal stenosis (diagnosed 8 months ago) so im currently only doing split squats. Just started rack pulls 2 months ago working my way back to the deadlift and eventually regular squats.

    2 sets warmup
    3 or 4 sets ramping up the weight, usually depends on how busy the gym is, mood, etc.
    Then 3 sets of goblet squats. <--this is new for me
    Then 3 sets of either walking or regular lunges.
    Then 3 sets of 20 reps on the leg extension to get a lactic acid burn and pump.

    Starting this week I'm switching things up and will be trying out the goblet squats as a warmup for the regular squats.
