Calves, Hamstrings, Quads, Glutes...

I have two days to exercise each group. As far as weights go, how would you group these exercises? Calves/Hamstrings on one day, Quads/Glutes on the other? There will be rest for these muscle groups between days.

Thanks for the help. Please note your reasoning.

    Don't necessarily discount the effectiveness of compound workouts which target multiple of these muscles at once. Personally I do Squats, Deadlifts, and Power Cleans to hit my legs. Since they are compound, though, it may be tough to figure out which split leg workout to put them in. – Moses Oct 13 '12 at 21:40

There is no correct way answer this question; as the answer would depend on your approach to weightlifting.

The best advice I can honestly give is "don't overthink it".

Generally speaking: As long as you do the right selection of exercises correctly and with enough intensity, results will follow.

Look at how developed a powerlifter's legs are, great example that exercise grouping is not necessary.
