Body Building – Legs – Day 44

Day 44

leg 1

There’s some eye candy for ya. Leg training engages large muscles, is physically demanding, and burns lots of calories.  Leg training is especially important for athletic, aesthetic, and anti-aging purposes.  Strong legs are built by consistent, variable, and challenging resistance workouts.  Cardiovascular work alone is not enough to maintain optimum muscle development for strength and stamina.

Since my post was so long yesterday. I’ll keep this one short.

Narrow stance squats: 2 light sets – (45 lb. Olympic Bar) of 15 reps and 2 heavier sets to failure (100 lbs)

Narrow stance Leg press: 70 lbs – 4 sets of 8 reps – was too light, should have added more

Barbell Step-ups: 30 lbs. – 4 sets of 8 reps   Extra Credit – I did 20 reps

Walking Barbell ‘Double’ Lunges: 30 lbs. – (step- down-up-down) 3 sets of 20 reps

Single Leg Barbell Squat (foot on bench): 30 lbs – 4 sets of 8 reps each leg

Seated Calf Raise: 70 lbs. – 3 sets of 20 reps, last set to failure

Leg Extensions :- 100 lbs. – 3 sets of 10 reps, last set to failure
