I had THE best leg day just last week so I wanted to share with you my workout. I used to hate training legs but only because I had some issues with my glute. I had a lot of pain while squatting up until August 2012. After 7 ART treatments I am squatting pain-free! WHoop WHoop!!
Right now during my offseason I am training with high volume and intensity. I’m trying to pack on some muscle and gain as much strength as I can as this is near to impossible while dieting for a show. I split out hamstrings on Monday and then hammer legs on Friday. I am always trying for new personal bests which I am proud to say has happened and I am stoked about that!! I love how strong my legs have become. Not only can I feel the increase in strength but over the last year and half I have seen amazing gains in my legs and glutes which is what I need for my show!
Here is the breakdown:
Leg press 1 set Warmup, 4 sets x 8-10reps
Full squat 3 sets x 8-12reps (ass to grass, so the volume may not be as heavy)
BB deadlift 3 sets x 8-10reps
Leg extension super set with bulgarian split squat 3 sets x 8-12reps
Leg curl 3 sets x 8-10reps
Leg press straight legged calf raises 3-4 sets x 10-15reps
It was an impressive workout mostly because I trained with a client that day. We rested but the intensity was insane! I love those type of workouts. Walking away was a chore! Goal was to hit some personal bests which we did and goal was to walk away, legs full and sore! Goal achieved!
Always push your limits. Don’t just walk into a workout and go thru the motions…make sure you show up and LIFT THAT SHIT!! Gains come from intensity and hard work and discipline…HAPPY TRAINING 🙂
