wow, thank you for taking the time to post this. I really appreciate it.

the seated curls, Bulgarians, belt squats, and leg extensions have been my go to as of late. I've basically been using the belt squats as my main "compound" movement. for some reason the tension from the belt when I get up to a decent weight literally bruises up my hips. I've resorted to folding up old knee sleeves and putting them around my hips. If it wasn't for the belt discomfort I could destroy this movement. Ill keep playing with it and see.

I'm thinking about adding in the pendulum squat this week and see how it goes. I also have a paramount one and Randy Coyle swing squat.

As for Back I dropped everything that had me bent over rowing with out chest support. I hope one day I can get rack pulls back in the mix though
The only thing to watch with belt squats is to not get the belt too high up. Be sure it rests around your hips. I screwed up once and got it up a but high. It really destroyed my lower back.

Do you think doing only leg extensions for quads as in 8 sets of 15 reps, 3 times per week, could help develop mass and new tissue or would you say this is only effective for maintenance purposes?
Yes.

Hack Squats and Leg Presses for me with no problems. Also do 15-20 reps so not really heavy but still taxing. My gym has no fancy squat machines to alleviate back issues. No more free weight squats or deads though.

Recently been struggling bad with lumbar pain that I believe is due to piriformis syndrome.....my leg training has sucked the past few months due to the terrible mobility. I have found that foam rolling and stretching the piriformis helps. Anybody else suffered from this?

Almost 3 pages and only the second to last post (unless I missed someone but read everything) have mentioned hack squats. Literally the best quad exercise hands down due to how your able to get max flexion with hamstrings touching calves to really work the hell out of the quads and I never have any back involvement with it if you use proper form keeping back against the pad
