    I have a 3-day split, with day 3 being legs and abs.
    The leg excersizes are:

    - Squats
    - Adductors
    - Abbductors
    - Leg Extensions
    - Calf Raises

    .... Is this sufficient?
    Can't help but feel that the quads/hamstring doesn't get enough airtime

    Thanks

    If you want more hamstring work, perhaps do some leg curls. And if you feel that squats and leg extensions aren't enough for your quads (I get the same feeling), then do some leg presses.

    Where's the deadlifting? Where's the lunges and/or stepups?

    Need to see rest of the training to judge, do you hit your PC on back day for example?

    Keep squats, get rid of everything else, then add in deadlifts and step ups.

    But you might do your PC on back day so maybe post the rest up

    and goals

    Thanks for the responses people.
    My current goal is to become this sort of size:

    I'm currently just under 12 stone and 5"10, have no six pack but am far from overweight.

    I do deadlifts on my back days.
    Am I right in saying that the hamstring is hit hardest when doing squats?
    I'm thinking of adding the Machine Leg press to the workout.

    Cheers

    Screw leg presses, stick with squats 5 x 5, get some glute ham raises or good mornings in there too.

    You're not doing them right then.

    OP: SLDLs on none deadlift days, glute-ham raises, and proper calf raises followed by PC work I'd add.

    Excuse my ignorance but what is this PC work you speak of?

    Depends on your stance, wider = glutes/hams, closer = quads

    and feet in/out/straight

    Why are you randomly doing Ab/Add without hamstrings which are more important? do some damn stiff leg deadlifts or pull throughs.

    Why don't you do ham curls using a swiss ball? Harder than the crappy machine ones.
