When people see the word ‘massive’ they tend to think lower reps. Where as this is true with most body parts, your legs (especially quads) have more slow-twitch muscle fibers. For many this means that your quads and hams respond better to higher reps.
Don’t get this confused with going light! As IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Branch Warren once said “Light days? What is that, a tampon?” Obviously you’re not using weights that you can only get for a few reps. But don’t lighten the load too much as you will be surprised how much you can push yourself to the next level with leg training. Give this leg workout all you’ve got and it will give back to you some serious leg mass.
Leg Press: 4 sets of 12-15 reps
Squats: 4 sets of 12-15 reps
Leg Extensions: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Lying Leg Curls: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
Seated or Standing Leg Curls: 3 sets of 12-15 reps
At a glance, my massive leg workout looks more like a basic one. To some extent, it is. I tend to stick with basic exercises, especially for legs. Exercises like squats, leg press, leg extensions, and leg curls simply work.
Also, the key to this massive leg workout is intensity. There’s no magic number of sets or reps. It’s true that I find my legs respond better to higher reps. But regardless, intensity is how you build the muscle.
