After being on a strength and conditioning workout program for several weeks, I’ve gone back to bodybuilding workouts.
The goal of bodybuilding workouts is to make your muscles bigger.
I want share today’s bodybuilding leg workout with you. And just a heads up, this workout include both squats and front squats.
Bodybuilding Leg Workout – 11/23/2017
What makes this a bodybuilding leg workout is that you’re doing high volume with a lot of sets and reps. This pumps more blood into the muscle, which will make your muscles bigger.
Including both squats and front squats takes it to the next level of muscle building.
Here’s the leg workout:
- Leg Extensions
- 3 sets x 15 reps
- 4 sets x 12, 10, 8, 6 reps
- Leg Press
- 4 sets x 15 reps
- Stiff-Leg Deadlifts
- 4 sets x 8 reps
- Front Squats
- 3 sets x 10 reps
- Leg Curls
- 4 sets x 12 reps
Bodybuilding Leg Exercises
Leg Extensions: I used this as a warm-up before doing squats. The weight was light and I did not go all-out.
Squats: I started with a moderate weight for squats and moved up in weight each set. I also lowered the reps as I increased the weight. The goal was to go heavy on my last set of squats. This is a sure-fire technique to get big.
Leg Press: I also moved up in weight each set but I kept the reps high, at 15. Many will load up the leg press and ego lift and only of half-reps. I go for the pump on leg press, and I do full reps.
Stiff-Leg Deadlifts: IMO, this is the best exercise for hamstrings. I went up a little in weight each set.
Front Squats: I just started back doing front squats a few weeks ago. Front squats really target your quads and I’m now including them in every bodybuilding leg workout.
Leg Curls: For this specific bodybuilding leg workout, I used the Hamstring Leg Curl plate-loaded machine. You can substitute this with lying, standing, or seated leg curls. Or you could do moe stiff-leg deadlifts.
Leg Day is a Beautiful Day
Seriously, I love training legs. And I felt extremely pumped after doing this bodybuilding leg workout.
I hadn’t done this much volume for leg exercises in a while. I can’t wait to train legs again next week!
Train with Passion,
