Normally, my leg workouts start with a leg curl variation. However, this week I decided to try something different. I took a page out of the Neil Hill training program and WOW: This one pushed me to the absolute limits.
Leg press: Did about 4 warmup sets of 20, gradually increasing weight. Then I proceeded to two working sets. All it tooks was two.
Set 1: Triple drop sets of 20 reps. So total of 60 reps
Set 2: Triple drop sets of 20 reps. So total of 60 reps
At this point I could’ve gone home and called it a day, but then this happened:
Giant set: Squats/Lunges/Leg Extensions/Partial Leg Extensions
Squats x 12
Walking lunges x 15
Leg extensions (drop set) x 20 x 20
Partial heavy extensions x 15
I did four rounds of this, resting 2 minute rest after each round.
Giant set: DB STLD/Lying Leg Curls/Standing Leg Curls
Dumbbell Stiff Legged Deads X 12
Lying leg curls x 12
Standing leg curls x 10
5 rounds. 2 minute test after each round.
There it is. One of the hardest workouts I have ever put myself through. There were a few times where I almost lost my intra workout shake…
