Legs

I've been hitting legs twice a week lately.  The second session of the week is much lighter and focused only on getting blood into the muscle.  Since I've come back to training after a long break I've noticed that I have trouble activating my outer quads.  When I was in my 20s, any leg movement would draw blood into my quads and leave my outer quads sore the next day.
Now that I'm in my mid-30s I've found that it's harder and harder to get blood into my outer quads, and it's getting rarer and rarer that my outer quads are sore after training.

So, in an effort to avoid the mid 40s turnip leg syndrome that I've seen on so many older bodybuilders, I'm using a second leg day each week to focus on my quad sweep
