So far in our “Legs from Hell” program we’ve covered squatting and all the little hacks related to this type of exercise. Now, we are focusing on a 2 week program that will help with the leg part of your workout routine in a way that will add size and strength to your runners.
Week 2 Leg day
We have again decided to make day 3 our leg day, but you can assign other day to be your leg day if you want to.
- Back Squats (Ladder Set) – 4 sets of 1 rep. Make sure you rest up to 3-4 minutes between rounds.
- Rear Leg Elevated Split Squat – 4 sets of 10 reps. Resting sessions are pretty important here, so be sure to rest 15 seconds between legs, and 2 minutes between rounds.
- Leg Press – 3 sets of 20 reps.
Walking it off, indeed, and also make sure you schedule a day of complete rest following this workout as it is quite difficult.
It is definitely not for beginners and it certainly requires a strong willpower, but it will definitely pay off in the long run.
