Lose the leg curl or unilateral leg press on the light lower day and replace with GMs or another deadlift variation. Alternate heavy squats with deads maybe once every 3 weeks.

Unilateral work has its place imo.

I agree with freako on the GM's but I would add it to the rest.

^^ Unilateral leg presses are lame in comparison to a lunge, bulgarian squat or split squat (all of which fit better into a lower body day).

Hit up The Creator with this question. He was on an UB/LB split for some time and can give you some good help with it.

True cant argue with you on that.
