It's worth keeping in mind, that one uses different amounts of weights, with different amounts of reps in different amounts of sets, depending on what they're looking to do...
Bodybuilders don't lift as heavy as someone who's trying to build functional strength... They do lighter lifts (can still be heavy), with more reps in more sets, than someone who's training for, say, Olympic deadlifting; but I promise you that the Olympic trained athlete is a great deal stronger than the body builder. The strongest guys, don't look like they should be the strongest guys.
So bear in mind, that by trying to build up your legs to look like a savage, you're not necessarily building up their functionality or explosiveness; and at the end of the day, functionality > appearance.
I just thought that was an important distinction to make.
