Leg day is the best of training days, and the worst of training days. If done right, hardcore trainees will have an evident waddle in their walk from a serious case of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMs), and some hardcore part of them will actually love it.
In less than an hour, this Muscle Militia MVP workout will help you develop every muscle in your legs. You’ll start with the calves, then move to the hamstrings and quads before finishing with loaded lunges—a dreaded exercise that will turn any set of weak toothpicks into powerful tree trunks.
Now, you might be wondering, “Just what the hell is an MVP workout?” Well, first and foremost, it takes an MVP: someone with motivation, vision, and passion; someone who’s willing to push every exercise to the brink; someone who can train to failure, stare it dead in the eye, and shove past it. Show me anyone, man or woman, who can turn a workout into a muscle-burning challenge, and I’ll show you an MVP.
Second, the workout itself has to qualify. It has to be hard, fast, and packed with a dynamic array of exercises. It should build strength and size. It should test your limits, encourage growth, and hit the target body part with force. This leg workout definitely fits the bill.
This is a volume-based workout, and your goal should be to get a good contraction of the working muscle on every rep. You may sacrifice a bit of the weight today, but focus on form and time under tension, and you won’t be disappointed. When you concentrate on form, you get more into the nitty-gritty of breaking down your muscle.
Move at a fast pace, using 3 sets of reverse-pyramid lifting per exercise. Go heavy on each first working set, then decrease the weight and increase the reps for the second and third sets. Drop the weight about 10 percent after each set.
Not every gym has a Smith machine. Not every gym has a leg press, let alone an inverted leg press. Be creative. The Smith machine leg press replicates that inverted motion; check out the video to see how I used a box for that exercise. The press can also be completed from the ground. Put the stops up on the Smith machine for safety.
