Make the most of your workout!
I’ve been house shopping lately, and I now have a keen eye for a “full” bathroom which means a full 4 pieces: Shower, Bath, Toilet, Sink. Whereas without the bath you’re only a 0.75 bath and without the shower it’s only a 1/2 bath. So why not apply this to your leg routine? After all, you have 4 “pieces” (major muscle groups) – and you have to use the all if you want a FULL workout!
here is my best “FULL” Leg workout (click the hyperlinks for images):
The routine is quite simple:
BEGINNERS: Perform 3 sets of 12 reps each – per exercise – with 30 seconds of rest in between sets (so for example, do 12 lunges on right leg, 12 lunges on left leg – rest 30 seconds then repeat 2 more times. Then move to the next exercise).
Use about the same weight for each exercise: Women: use about 20 lbs for beginners, 30 for intermediate and 40 lbs for advanced. Men, add 10-20 lbs on top of that.
ADVANCED Gym Rats: Go Big! Perform 3 sets of 12 reps each – per exercise – but add a “super set” exercise in between sets:
