Okay, now it’s time to put in some work on skinny legs! Having a good upper body is awesome, but if it ever gets to a point where a hard breeze outside can knock you over, then there’s a problem. Something’s not adding up 😛 Women usually don’t have a problem working the lower body. But some of us guys need to play catch-up with some of the women out there! So if you’re a guy and hate working on the lower body…get over it! I had to!
A major benefit of leg workouts is that they release your natural growth hormone factors. I remember when I forced myself to do legs twice a week and it was beneficial. My upper body began to grow at a faster rate. This is what you want 🙂
This workout is only a few exercises. It’s made this way because the focus is on heavier weight. Time to get the legs up to par…let’s get started!
Make sure to warm up for about 15 min
Set 1=15 repetitions
Set 2=15 repetitions
Set 3=10 repetitions
Sets 1-3=10 repetitions
Set 4=8 repetitions
Technique is important here. When you squat, always look above you. This will help you to be aligned. Have your feet a little wider than shoulder length. Point the toes slightly outward. Take a deep breath before you squat and exhale on the way up. This will tighten you up and help prevent injury.
Set 1=8 repetitions
Set 2=6 repetitions
Set 3=6 repetitions
Set 4=4 repetitions
Set 5=4 repetitions
For squats, make sure to rest for 2-5 min in between each set depending on how heavy the weight is.
Leg workouts like this can add some size to the legs. It’s short, simple, and to the point. The next leg workout will be slightly different. But until then, let’s start getting those legs lookin’ like tree trunks! Not literally, but you know what I’m sayin’ 🙂
As always, stay up on the supplements. Supplements will help you get to where you want to be.
