High Energy Leg Workout

I’m calling this morning’s session my ‘high energy leg workout’ because there wasn’t much resting going on. I started out with what’s become on of my favorite leg exercise-techniques. I’ll go in more detail below but this technique has proven to be extremely effective for adding size to my quads.

JASON’S INSTANT KNOCKOUT REVIEW

Alright, so there’s several techniques listed in my leg workout. I’ll start out with leg press. I’ve done this a lot recently to where I do a set with a close foot stance immediately followed by another set with a wider for stance. I say wide but it’s just a little wider than shoulder width. I’ve never seen the point in going extremely wide. After 5 sets of that (which would be 10 collective sets), I dropped the weight way down and did what I’m calling an extended rest pause set until I hit 100 total reps. I basically rested about 10 seconds between each set for this.

I hit some drop sets on lying leg curls which really gave me a good burn. I hit rest-pause sets for leg extensions followed by the extended rest-pause set for the Hammer Strength Leg curls. The difference between rest pause and extended rest pause is this: Rest pause is a set followed by another set using the same weight after about 7-10 seconds of rest. That’s 1 rest pause set. An extended rest pause set is the same yet you continue with multiple ‘mini-sets’ for that 1 extended rest pause set.

I hit some cardio after that. I got home and made sure I doubled my usual post workout carbs. I also had pasta for lunch and a hefty dinner. Recovery, here I come!

Train with Passion,

Jason
