The following details my leg workout from last Saturday morning at Kirkland Gold’s Gym.  I continued to focus on Vince Gironda training philosophy for 80% of the workout by doing as much work in a short period of time.  I did drop the reps on the short rest period sets from 8 to 6 and then finished with the opposite - A higher rep (15) approach with longer rest periods.  Here is the workout…


Lying Leg Curls


I did 3 sets of 15 reps each to warm up - FYI.


Lying Leg Curls x 8 sets of 6 reps with 125lbs


*Again the approach here is minimal rest breaks.  I rest just long enough for Christina to do her set.  I did drop the reps down from the typical 8 to 6 today.


Leg Extensions


I again did 3 sets of 15 reps with lighter weight to warm up - FYI.


Leg Extensions x 8 sets of 6 reps with 250lbs


*Control the tempo on your reps and rest just long enough for your training partner to do their set of 6 reps; approximately 20 seconds if training alone.


Cambered Bar Squats


This is the type of bar I used here:


Cambered Bar Squat x 8 sets of 6 reps with 135lbs


*My lower back can’t handle compression so I used very light weight.  Adjust yours as per your ability.  To make this exercise more demanding I rested only 15 seconds between each of my 8 sets.


Leg Press


Set 1 x 15 reps with 2 plates/side

Set 2 x 15 reps with 3 plates/side

Set 3 x 15 reps with 4 plates/side

Set 4 x 15 reps with 5 plates/side

Set 5 x 15 reps with 6 plates/side

Set 6 x 15 reps with 7 plates/side

Set 7 x 15 reps with 8 plates/side


*I completely switched things up here on my final exercise.  I took the rest periods to 2+ minutes and increased the reps on each set to 15.  I also worked my way up in weight until I could barely get 15 reps.


That concluded this leg workout.


Train hard!
