This is a leg routine I like to use often throwing it in once a month or sometimes even every other leg day. It’s a bit unorthodox as you alternate exercises for quads and hamstrings rather than working quads followed by hamstrings. Hamstrings often get neglected and are not giving the attention they need.
Without proper hamstring development your legs aren’t going to look full (similar to the concept of giving equal attention to your biceps and triceps). It is true that your hams are working when doing compound leg movements such as squats and leg press, but your quads and glutes are more dominant in those movements. This leg workout focuses on overall leg development.
Squats: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Lying Leg Curls: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Leg Press: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Seated Leg Curls: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Leg Extensions: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Stiff-Leg Deadlifts: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
I actually prefer the dynamic leg workout method for leg training. Not only does it allow you to give adequate attention to your hamstrings but also allows a little more rest before you hit a heavy quad exercise (instead of going from squats to leg press in a typical leg routine you’d be throwing an exercise for hamstrings between those). This is definitely worth trying if you’re looking for a change in your leg workouts.
