The PERFECT Leg Workout (Sets and Reps Included)

The PERFECT Leg Workout (Sets and Reps Included)

The PERFECT Leg Workout ►Take What Paul uses:

Great legs require intense effort and smart training. Learn leg anatomy and the techniques you need to build better hams, glutes, and quads.

When I started training, I was a total idiot. I didn’t want to train legs and had every excuse in the book: “I don’t want my legs to get too big,” “I play sports, so I don’t need to train legs,” and of course, “Squats are bad for your knees.”


Whether your goal is to squat or deadlift stupid amounts of weight, build thighs that blow away your competition, or simply look great in the summer, the discussion begins and ends with a great set of legs.

There’s just one small problem: building big, strong, and athletic legs is damn hard work! That’s the real reason why most people either don’t train legs, or don’t take leg training seriously enough to forge wheels of steel.

In my not-so-humble opinion, if you’re not serious about leg training, you’re not serious about your training. Period.

What You Should Know About Leg Anatomy
I know you want to talk big legs, but let’s get some basics down first. There are three planes of movement: the sagittal, frontal, and transverse. You exercise on the sagittal plane when you move forward and backward. When you move side-to-side, you’re on the frontal plane. Any rotation occurs on the transverse plane. Easy, right?

We could make this much more difficult and super-duper geeky. But I don’t think we need to focus on various movements, concern ourselves with concentric vs. eccentric motions, or worry about stabilizers versus prime movers.
