Having some issues with legs

I'm having a hard time breaking through my leg plateau, my legs are losing size along with my ass. My calves are ok. Currently my leg workout consists of leg press machine, 4 sets of 12,12,10,10. Then leg extensions 4 sets of 15,12,12,10, then lying leg curls 4 sets of 15,15,12,12. I do dead lifts on my back day. I can’t do squats with the bar behind my neck, I get a very bad pain in my neck, I had a buddy watch my form and he said all was good, but the pain isn’t healthy. My strength has stayed the same but my legs lost and are losing a lot of size. I have been doing this workout for about a year now and never had a problem. The rest of my body is growing, I was thinking of adding hack squats to the workout. Any ideas guys?

i'm just gonna throw this out there

and i'm not gonna comment on your current routine

-start training legs twice a week
-totally drop your current (lousy) routine
-hack sqts are gonna be your best friend

first workout
-leg press machine, with a weight stack, use your current body weight
(ex. i use 250lbs).....10 sets of 10 reps, with 10 sec.between sets
basically a 100 rep set
-extentions....same thing....10 sets of 10, 10 sec. rest
i use 100lbs on the stack
-curls.....same thing i use 100lbs
whole workout takes about 30mins

second workout (3 days later)
-hacks.....HEAVY, take your time.....6 to 8 sets (ex. 20 15 12 10 8 6 25)
-deadlifts.....same way

do this for 4 weeks
then come back and thank me later

:cool:

try a manta ray. you should be able to squat with it. if you have no back problems, you should squat, well knee, hip etc. but the manta will solve your problem, and get you squatting. My wife bought me one as a surprise b/c she saw me having trouble with my arms and the lousy ROM I have in my shoulders. Thought she was kidding and gave her a really hard time @ it. When I started to use it I hated it so much that I told her I would never use it again. Out of guilt for shitting on her gift, I kept trying it, and low and behold I started liking it. Now I really enjoy using it. Someone gave me shit @ being hardcore, and all that nonsense, but I told them I didn't know what that meant, and they should get up everyday b4 breakfast and do an hour of cardio, and go into calorie deficit for 16 weeks, all for a plastic trophy, and tell me what hardcore is?
Also, maybe think about doing less sets, higher weight, higher frequency, just a thought for something different.

I might have missed this, but have you tried front squats? Obviously takes the strain off your neck--this might help
