Building lean muscular legs of steel: Leg workout

I have mentioned in previous post that I do not  workout my legs as much as my upper body. This is due to the fact that I think my legs are already thick enough because at the end of the day I am not a bodybuilder and do not want massive legs.

I now realise that even though I always had a skinny upper body my lower body was always thicker even though it was unnoticeable. My upper body has been playing catch-up, at this moment I feel like I am balanced but I could do with a slightly bigger upper body especially in terms of arms and shoulders (I’m working on that). Since I am bulking now I realised the importance of a proper, consistent leg workout schedule. So I plan on doing it on a weekly basis as well now just like other body parts, but I will stick with 3 basic exercise for now.

So I will do these 3 leg exercises using high repetition so as to increase more in terms of definition rather than size but some size will come from this routine:

  • Squats – jumping squats with out weight are also a great cardio workout, mixing these with normal squats will be good for both a little size and definition.

  • Lunges – These will really help with having tight hard legs especially if done in very high repetition.

  • Romanian deadlift – these are great for glutes, hamstrings as well as the lower back. Doing a lot of reps of this exercise will be a great exercise.

For now I will stick to this routine but I might adjust it in the coming weeks.
