I gues you are working your legs in the gym? What you can do to really help your legs is one of three things.

Increase the load and intensity of your legtrainings.

Train in a upperbody/lowerbody fasion (2 times squatting a week) with atleast one pure upper leg day training.

Go fullbody. 3 times squatting a week. No pure legday training but all this squatting for sure will help your legs.

If you post what you do for your leggs now i and others can see what is best to change!

I do a full body 3 times a week with all the compound lifts plus I add at least 3 more sets of different ones to target each area. 1 day is a little lighter with more reps the next is heavier and so on for the third day. I squat every time . Some days I get 50 reps on heavier days not as much . Along with the squat I do lunges calf raises...

Allright. A fullbody with squats in it is great for the legs. You can try to switch the reprange for the squats. What i personally like and what works for me(could be totally different with you) is to keep the squats reps lower but increase the sets. So instead of 3x15 go 6x5. And then go higher in reps on the second leg workout. What this has done for me is give me a more powerfull feeling to my training and in the end reaching the power and energy faillure of the body. It could also be an option to...
