my leg routine is squats,lunges,leg extensions and some kind of hamstring exercise i alway switch it up from lying leg curls, sitted leg curls or good mornings i do 3 sets of 8-12 reps. I dont do calves exercises since i got strecth marks from muscle growing to fast and i do deadlifts on my back day and advise would be appreciated

Sounds good to me, beware of leg extensions on a machine, I've heard that if one doesn't really pay attention to the settings (proper length/height settings) of the machine it can put undue stress on one's knees.

I like it. My recent routine is pretty similar (only differences I also do leg presses and I do hyperextensions which are similar to good mornings) and I've been getting great results in my legs lately. I do deadlifts on back day too cause my leg day is already my most brutal day. If you want to take it easy on calves you could keep working them but with little or no weight.

For leg extensions, from this site it says to prevent knee injuries make sure you are bringing your legs all the way to the top of the motion (not stopping 20 or 30 degrees early). My experience definitely corroborates this, as when I started out I was having knee issues and since I focused on this I have had no such problems.
