    Sure, but the form in op picrel is awful.
    Motherfricker there are so many leg exercises you can do with dumbbells. Lunges, split squats, all the variations of the two, calf raises, step ups, Nordic curls, single leg deadlifts, normal deadlifts (if you have the 200lbs dumbbells), etc.

        Her front foot is too far in front for her not to shift half her weight to her rear foot. But you spotted that, right?

    Squats and deadlifts are a must. You can do the dumbbell stuff as accessory movements.

            You'll get far more benefit from just doing barbell squat and deadlift than doing dumbbell leg ""exercises""
            The big barbell compound lifts are what makes you stronger, which also makes you bigger.

              But why. Explain why homie. You’re parrotting dogma without even knowing why. Resistance is resistance. If you progressively overload you’ll make gains.

              That sort of answers my question but it also makes me wonder why you think you need a barbell to get stronger instead of anything else

              Do this with a barbell though and you're good.

              But why. Explain why homie. You’re parrotting dogma without even knowing why. Resistance is resistance. If you progressively overload you’ll make gains.

              At a certain point you're gonna need a barbell on your back to keep up the progress.

              Because they can be lifted heavy.

              you're a dumbass motherfricker. there's a reason bodybuilding and powerlifting are separate sports and the competitors usually don't do both. dumb frick

              >usually
              Meaning it be done. I wonder why. Probably because they're so similar. Every successful bodybuilder has good powerlifts and every good powerlifter under the pregnant sow weight class has muscle development.

                Good for you if you have access to 120+ lb dumbbells and can hang on to them.

    I too only have dumbells. Leg day looks like:
    Bulg split 10x3
    Goblet squat 10-15 x 3
    Single leg calf extensions 12x3
    "Standing isometric glute contraction thingy with heavy resistance band around ankle and low point" 5 seconds 10x3

    These are all superset with lower back and abs/core.

    I'm nothing impressive, but I have made a noticable difference since starting just before Christmas. I have no problem putting myself into total hobble mode for a couple days afterwards.

      Bro, your hamstrings?

        What about them? Their sore every next day and without stretching they get pretty tight. I find the split squat hits different depending on how you place your feet and if the weight is behind or in front of your center of mass. This might be why some people find it doesn't get them what they want. I definitely shortened my hammys though before I started stretching them daily, that was an eye opener.

        >Is this enough for legs?
        Oh yeah. People have progressed this to the limits of leg mass. You may be a little quad dominant but huge nonetheless.
        >I only have dumbbells.
        Nope. That's not gonna cut it.

        I would agree that this is the limit, when you can't hold big enough dumbells. Work on grip strength and get bigger ones? Pretty big gains can be had up to 200Lbs, after that you're in territory where a home gym isn't going to cut it in a lot more ways than one.

    Yes but you're going to have to do more sets than you think. It's like 16-18 sets with split squats to see any appreciable growth on legs. It kills me inside to even think about my routine before the gym and hack squat machine.
