Leg Day

Jason’s Leg Day

This morning was leg day in my new training split. I’ve been hitting legs on Wednesdays for a long time now and that changed this week (I’ll be hitting each muscle every 4-6 days on this training split so leg day will fall on various days). I generally use basic leg exercises with high training volume. Sometimes I’ll throw in a variety of techniques, such as rest-pause sets, supersets, etc. But often times I’ll perform straight sets with higher reps or more overall sets. This morning’s leg workout consisted of a lotta sets.

Leg Workout

Leg Press: 5 sets x 15 sets

Leg Extensions: 10 sets x 10 reps

Lying Leg Curls: 7 sets x 10 rep

Standing Leg Curls: 7 sets x 10 reps

Machine Squats: 4 sets x 12 reps

Seated Calves Raises: 7 sets x 12 reps

Jason’s Hyper Gain Review

HyperGain Review

I went up in weight on each set of my leg presses by adding another plate on each side (I didn’t count my 2 warm up sets above). I used the old school German Volume Training technique for leg extensions: 10 x 10. I went up in weight a couple times throughout these sets. My hamstrings burn out pretty quickly and sometimes even cramp up, so I stopped at 7 sets. I still got a good pump. I hit a few sets of machine squats. I have to be careful with any type of squat because of my lower back issues. I prefer the hack squat but I hadn’t hit this machine in a while and wanted to throw in something different.

I hit some calves at the end of my leg workout. I’ve been hitting calves almost every day after my workouts. I did my usual cardio after training legs which is normally anywhere from 17 to 23 minutes of interval training on the stationary bike.
