If you’re struggling to get the leg size and definition you want, you might need a brutal leg training programme with the perfect diet.
When training legs, you will want to come out of the gym barely able to walk upstairs, if a conventional leg programme isn’t working for you, there’s a small possiblilty you’re overtraining, but much more likely is you’re undertraining and need to try this.
Start off with getting good rest every night and eating 1000-2000 calories over sustaining, eating all whole food, plenty of protein, healthy fats and complex carbs so you have the foundation for building big muscles.
You should do this leg workout 2-3 times a week, 3 times a week will probably over train you over a prolonged period of time (1 month or more
Warning you want to have been lifting for some time before doing this, and have correct form, this is to ensure you don’t get injured.
The Giant Leg Muscle Building Workout:60 second rest bestween sets, lower the weight if you need to keep the rest the same
Back Squat, 4 sets of 20 reps controlled through the range of motion and explode up, if you have workout buddies you can drop set so start the set off with a heavy weight and drop the weight each time you can’t lift it anymore. Starting with squats rather than deadlifts as they work the quads much more.
Calf Raises, 4 sets of 10-15 reps with enough weight so your calves are burning after each set.
Deadlift 3 sets of 5-10 reps, You’ll probably only want to do this twice a week and maybe make it heavier.
If you’re still feeling like you have strength in your legs, go for dumbell lunges with 2 seconds up and 2 seconds down 3-4 sets of 5-8 on each leg
Lastly fit in leg press 3 sets of 15-20 reps, this gets the blood flowing to the legs before you finish, great for recovery and muscle building. If you’re absolutely destroyed keep the leg press light or consider 5 minutes on a bike instead.
Note: There isn’t so much functional movement in this e.g ketllebell swings or bosu ball squats etc, you might want to put htem in before or just after the back squat if you’re an athlete. Also i would recommend this workout for the off season, you should be working on strength, power and technique during and just before the season.
