Start your high intensity weight training routine with the largest muscles of the body – the Legs! Why? Because training the legs is a must when it comes to building maximum muscular size and strength.
The first exercise – one set of leg presses performed on a universal weight machine taken to a point of momentary muscular failure. Most subjects fail somewhere between 15 and 20 reps.
Once momentary muscular failure has occurred move immediately to the second exercise – perform one set of leg extensions, aim to reach failure within 15 or 20 reps.
The third exercise is the full squat with a barbell. Again, aim to reach failure within 15 to 20 reps.
The fourth and last exercise is the barbell stiff-legged dead-lift, aim to reach failure within 15 to 20 reps.
Start each exercise within three seconds upon completion of the previous exercise.
This style of high intensity training will produce results that most people will not believe and it does not require a lot of time!
In fact, this 4-exercise leg routine is completed in less than 10 minutes and can be performed twice a week.
