High Volume Leg Day with 10×10

As usual, this morning’s leg workout was quite brutal. I’m actually changing things up a little on my leg day. I’m going to incorporate more volume in my leg workouts and I will no longer be doing my usual 30 minutes of cardio after my leg workout . I normally do cardio after weight training, which I’ll continue doing, just not on leg day (generally every Wednesday for me). Speaking of volume training, I wanted to post this morning’s leg workout because not only was a little more volume added, but we also implemented the old school 10 x 10 training method for leg press. So here’s this morning’s high volume leg workout with the 10 x 10 training method.

High Volume with 10 x 10 leg workout:

Lying Leg Curls: 3 sets x 20, 15, 12 reps

Leg Extensions: 3 sets x 20, 15, 12 reps

Leg Press: 10 sets x 10 reps (we pyramided the weight each set; on about the 7th set we starting dropping the weight down in order to continue going deeper on our reps)

Standing Leg Curls: 4 sets x 12 reps

Machine Squats: 4 sets x 8 reps

Outer Abductor Machine (don’t laugh, these work): 4 sets x 20 reps

Superset Leg Extensions with Standing Leg Curls: 3 sets of 12 reps for each exercise (so a total of 6 sets)

That last standing leg curl machine was a bit different from the first standing leg curl machine we did; this one has you leaning forward a bit, so really it’s between a lying and standing leg curl. This leg workout took about an hour and 45 minutes. I also hit 5 sets x 20 reps for calves at the end. I’m a firm believe in higher volume for leg training if you want your legs to grow. Try this workout on your next leg day.

Train with Passion,
