3 Steps to Killer Legs

By Raphael | In Fitness, Motivation | on June 16, 2011

What would you be willing to sacrifice for great-looking legs? I’m not talking about a little bit of improvement. I’m talking about a transformation.

Would you clean up your nutrition and be consistent? Would you commit week in and week out to your weight training and cardio workouts and challenge yourself? Would you work to lower body fat?

Would you make your goal non-negotiable?

The answer has to be yes to all the questions. Mother Nature won’t allow for less than 100 percent yes. I don’t want you to settle for less than your best, and I know you can achieve it. It may take longer than you want depending on your current condition, but why not you?  I’ve never trained a client in whom I didn’t see possibilities and great potential. It may be under a layer of fat and it may be hiding in dormant muscles, but I assure you the woman with the great legs is there.

The Workout:
Perform the Goblet Squat for 15 reps, the Dumbbell Lunges 15 reps per leg, and 12 reps for the Stiff-Legged Deadlifts.

Beginners can perform 1-2 sets of each exercise on 2-3 non-consecutive days per week.

Everyone else can perform 3 sets of each exercise 1-2 non-consecutive days per week. The harder you work and the more intensity you put into each set, the more recovery you’ll need.

Focus on adding resistance and increasing reps each week. And most important, perform each exercise with precise form because it’s the key to getting the most out of your workout.
