So I wanted to give you guys an example of what my weekly Leg Training Routine looks like.
I believe the lower body can be so neglected by gym goers, leaving body imbalances and also hindering progress on your other lifts. We need to not forget your lower body is 50% of you!!!
Without a strong lower body, your upper body will suffer especially with stability. Building strong legs is crucial when looking to get stronger and healthier as both upper and lower go hand in hand.
So in saying that it’s time to see what I do for my lower body weekly. Be ready for those legs to GROW!!!!!!
I have 2 lower body workouts per week.
- One focusing on Strength
- One focusing on high rep muscle growth work (hypertrophy)
Day 1 – HeavyBack Squats – 4 sets of 3 reps
Sumo Deadlifts – 4 sets of 3 reps
Leg Extensions – 3 sets of 8 reps
Hamstring Curls – 3 sets of 8 reps
Calf Raises – 4 sets of 6 reps
Day 2 – Hypertrophy
Back or Front Squats – 4 sets of 8-10 reps
Sumo Deadlifts – 3 sets of 8-10 reps
Leg Press – 4 sets of 15-20 reps
Stiff Leg Deadlifts – 3 sets of 8 reps
Leg Extensions – 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Calf Raises – 3 sets of 15-20 reps
Let me know if any of you guys do try this routine out. Remember to try and keep your core tight when squatting and deadlifting. This will help you push through the movement and also support your back with proper core tightness.
If any of you guys have any questions please do let me know as I’m always here to help. Lift heavy!
