Exercise Questions | Order of exercise

When doing a strength programme I know you start with larger muscle groups first my question is do you do quads,hamstrings and repeat or do you do all quads then all hamstrings.Also I am confused about compound and isolation exercises

Compound exercises are exercises such as 'squats' which use multiple muscle groups to complete the exercise. Isolation exercises focus on one muscle group.

Sooo.. for your legs, you should try :

1. Squats/Lunges/Deadlifts/Leg Press
2. Leg Curls(Hamstrings) superset with Leg Extension(quads)
