Default Advice on legs

I'm coming off of my decline from the OVT program and am making a new routine. I plan on doing legs 2 times a week. I was wondering should I go hard one day then the next day go easy on my legs or go hard both days?
Sould I continue to superset everything?
And would it make a big difference if I switched deadlifts to stright legged deadlifts?
What muscles should I combine on days?
How amny workouts should I do per muscle?

I was thinking...
Sunday - Chest and back
Monday - Legs
Tuesday - Bis and Tris
Wednesday - Shoulders
Thursday - Legs

I like having Friday and Saturday off

u know, u could do legs Westside style... Dynamic Effort on Monday and Max Effort on Thursday...

wait, i think i made a custom westside routine for myself a while ago, and this is what i had planned:
Quote:
Dynamic Effort Lower Body

DE Squats 8x3 – with lightening fast speed

Squats 1-2x20

Power Cleans 3x5

Leg Curls superset with Leg Extensions 3x12

Calf Raises 5 sets

Abdominals
Quote:
Max Effort Lower Body

ME Deadlifts – complete in 6-7 sets

Squats 3x5

Power Cleans 3x5

Still Leg Deadlifts 3x10

Calves 5 sets

Abdominals
i hope this has helped... damn.... i'm feeling like shifting from Mark Rippetoe's 3x5 to Westside now :(

I might have to give that a try. I want my legs to get massive.

A2G squat...whenever you squat, ass hits the grass.

You can do Stiff Legged deads, but keep your regular deads and do them on back day, they are a must have. I wouldn't do DE squats, I'd stick to your plain old heavy ass A2G's.

Maybe:
Lower 1:
A2G 1x5 (5x5 pyramid to max set)
Leg Press 3x6
Stiff legged dead 3x6
Seated Calf raises

Lower 2:
A2G 5x5 (same weight)
Power Cleans 3x5
A1 Leg Curls
A2 Leg Extension
Standing Calf raises

That's my two cents, but I'm sure somebody else will either back me up or lend their own opinion
