Alright Live Leaners, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I want to share with you the best leg workout, for men and women, that follows a hybrid workout design so you can build leg MASS & STRENGTH at the same time.
This is somewhat unique because the best leg workouts will primarily be designed using protocols focusing on either adding size or strength. Not both.
NOTE: it is impossible to achieve peak strength gains AND maximize muscle mass with the same workout..
Different goals = Different workout design methods
In other words, being strong doesn’t necessarily mean bigger muscles (and vice versa). Just compare the biggest bodybuilder next to the strongest person in the world. Totally different physiques.
It’s best to train with heavy sets in the 1-5 rep range.
It’s best to train with sets in the hypertrophy zone of 9-12 rep range.
Even though it’s impossible to maximize optimal gains for both strength and muscle mass within the same workout, this “best of both worlds” leg workout (primarily using a 6-8 rep range) will still spark your quads and hamstrings with new growth as well as helping increase strength.
This Leg Workout is comprised of 4 exercises split into two supersets.
Complete the following leg workout twice a week for three weeks, then switch to another leg workout.
