Time To Build Your Foundation Part 3 of 3 Part Series – Advanced Leg Workout
Let’s move on to your advanced leg workout. Once you are no longer challenged by your intermediate level squats, lunges, and isolation exercises it’s time to add some machines and “finishers”.
Again, you should always warmup and stretch before training sessions.
Begin your advanced leg workout with squats. Squats are the most effective leg exercise and should always be a part of your leg training. Always use a weight that you can comfortably (and safely) control. Continue to squat deeply and under control without bouncing at the bottom. Once you reach the bottom of your squat, drive the weight upwards until you reach the upright, start position and repeat. If your goal is toning and moderate strength gains continue with 3 sets of 12 repetitions. If you are interested in size, mass and greater strength gains then do 3 sets of 8 reps with heavier weights.
