    Two forms of squat in same leg day?

    Hey guys and gals

    Has anyone ever done two kinds of squats in the same workout? For example 3 sets of back squats, then 3 sets of lunges (or another similar excersize) followed by 3 sets of hack squats (or another variation)?

    Any thoughts on this?

    I do Std. squats and Bulgarian squats on the same day. It's an ass kicker.

    I'll do barbell squats with plates under my feet, power rack squats, piles, hack squats...but never smith machine!

    Even with knees that are fucked, I still do squats first followed by leg presses and then front squats. Squats are done with my heaviest weight for 6-8 reps, front squats are done with a weight that is barely manageable for 10-12 reps.

    Why would you need to do that?

    Leg day example:
    Deadlifts
    Front squats
    1-leg-RDL
    lunges
    + isolation

    my advice is that you need to use perfect form. Otherwise, in an already weakened condition, your back and/or knees can give out.

    There might be a more logical way to do it depending on the overall program, but I have done this in the past when doing a split program.

    Or do Std. Squats then Bulgarian's with DB's, because if your back or knees give out, it is not going to injure you .
