Do you have legs that can be defined as twigs or sturdy tree stumps? It’s no secret that when people look at well-built and sculpted legs, it signifies a sign of strength and respect. Many people that workout at the gym either don’t train their legs properly or worse, they don’t even train their legs at all! If you don’t want to be known as the person with chicken legs, then you need to implement the necessary training regime to stimulate size and gain strength.
Leg extensions will stimulate the bloodflow in your legs and will warm up your knee joints. This is important so that you prevent getting any injury when you start doing the other exercises that are more demanding on the body. Start with a resistant weight that you can use for 2 sets of 15 repetitions.
The squat is the exercise that will allow you to build legs like a commando. You have the option of doing the exercise on your back (which will prioritise your glute muscles) or to do the front version (which will prioritise your quadriceps). Aim for 1 set of 20 reps, 1 set of 15 reps, 1 set of 10 reps and 1 set of 5 reos.
