Do I really need any leg exercises besides squats?

Do I really need any leg exercises besides squats? I also do deadlifts on pull day, but on leg day I just go all out on 5x5 squats.

        Leg accessories are just boring as fuck unless you genuinely enjoy legs that's just how it is. I do RDLs, back squats, and leg presses at not even that heavy of weight and I have pretty good looking calves and huge hamd and quads

    When squats get stale (it takes an absurd amount of volume for you to feel stimulated/you have nagging pains/they're not fun anymore)

    squats are pretty bad for hamstrings, so add a hamstring exercise (leg curl, sldl/rdl, etc). also do some (single-leg) calf raises if you care about that.
    but squat hit everything else (quads, adductors, glutes, spinal erectors), except for the rectus femoris head of the quads (which can be hit with knee extensions or hip flexion exercises).

      I came here to say this, I do RDL and started adding hip thrusts and my back stopped popping all the time and knee pain went away.

    depends on what you want, your genetics, training intensity, etc. etc.

    I'd highly recomend calf raises.
    >oh b-but it's 100% genetics
    it took me 3 years to find what works for mine and it was low reps, something everyone says is wrong for calves. you just need to find what works for yours, it can be something really weird and unconventional like mine needed.
