HIGH INTENSITY LEG WORKOUT
Leg Press 2 sets of 60 reps.
First set: 40 reps straight Rest 5-10 sec 10 more reps Rest 5-10 sec 5 more reps Rest 5-10 sec 5 more reps Second set: 30 reps straight Rest 5-10 sec 10 more reps Rest 5-10 sec 5 more reps Rest 5-10 sec 5 more reps Rest 5-10 sec 5more reps Rest 5-10 sec 5 more reps Follow that by 3-4 sets of Smith Machine squats of 10-12 reps and 3-4 sets on Leg Extension of 12-15 reps. This type of training is good to be included from time to time for the following reason. When you lift the weight first all major muscles are included to help in lifting the weight. Once the major muscles start getting tired more surrounding assisting muscles come to help to keep pushing the weight. By doing short rest pause intervals and trying to push the same weight for more reps more and more assisting muscles will be recruited in the process. This will normally not happen in a normal straight set. Try it and you will notice that between the 40th and 60th rep the pain is more and more shifted from the front quads to the inner quads, hamstrings, gluts and all other surrounding muscle that get involved in the process of hoisting the weight up. Choose a weight that will be challenging for you. Happy training Sasho
