The Leg Workout for Mass
The Leg Workout for Mass is designed to build your quads into mighty pillars of strength. A huge, well-shaped and defined leg is something to behold.
Another thing about massive ripped thighs is that hardly anybody has them. Some guys have a lean waistline, and others have big arms or chest, but only a serious lifter has big, cut legs. This Leg Workout for Mass can help you truly stand out in a crowd.
For a great leg workout, I have found that you need to warm up with some light cardio first. Walk, Run, or ride a bike for about 10 minutes to get the blood pumping and to loosen up. Stretch your legs out and get ready for the hard work to come.
There is no greater lift for your legs, or for your whole body, than the Squat! Many people hate to do squats, and make up any number of excuses not to do them. I was once one of those people as well, but I learned the hard way that maximum leg development cannot occur without some serious time doing squats. I trained with Brent Mikesell for awhile when he held the world record in Powerlifting for the Squat. You have never seen leg development until you have seen his legs. Each leg measured 35 inches around and even though he wasn't lean, he had so much muscle that you could see the thigh separation anyway!

The next part of the Leg Workout for Mass is to get to the Squat Rack and load a bar with 135 pounds (less if you squat under 200).
Take a comfortable grip and get under the bar. Squeeze your shoulder blades together to create a shelf on top of your traps, and rest the bar there. Stand up with the weight and set your feet about 2 feet apart. Find a stance that is comfortable, but it should be somewhere around 2 feet apart. Point your feet out at a 45 degree angle and take a deep breath. Hold that breath while you reach backward with your buttocks as if you were looking for a chair to sit in. Bend your knees and descend until your hips are below the tops of your knees. Power back up to a fully upright position. Maintain an arched back with your chest up throughout the movement. Continue that process for 9 more reps and rack the bar.
For your first working set of this bodybuilding workout, load a weight that you can squat for 12 reps, but only squat for sets of 8. Do 6 sets, stretching and resting for 2 minutes between each one. If you are using enough weight, this will be very difficult, just like it should be. The hard part is over, but you still need to put all of your effort into the rest of the workout to get the best results.
Leg curls are the next exercise. You probably don't need to warm up on this one after the squats, but you can if you want to. When you are ready for your work sets, load enough weight to limit you to12 reps and do 10. Do 4 sets, stretching and resting for 2 minutes between each. Remember to keep constant tension in your hamstrings during the entire set.
Your lower back and quadriceps should be recovered enough for stiff-legged deadlifts now. You may have to experiment a little bit with finding the right weight for this. Just remember that we are trying to work on squeezing the lower back, butt, and hamstrings throughout the movement on this one. Too heavy and you won't be able to focus on the squeezing. Too light and you won't get the results you want. You want to do everything right in this Leg Workout for Mass, so that you can get the best results possible. Grasp the bar with palms facing your body, spaced about 24 inches apart. Squat down and stand up with the weight. Begin the movement by reaching back with your butt, just like in the squat. Keep the bar close to the body and your back arched with your chest out. Lower the bar with your body in this position until you can't go any more without rounding your back or shoulders, and squeeze your body back up to the starting position. Do 4 sets for 12 reps each.
Now that you have completed the Leg Workout for Mass, your body should definitely be shaking and exhausted. I hope you have a partner to help you home, or at least, if you are going to drive use an automatic transmission. I have driven a stick after a tough leg workout, and the cramps and shaking were no fun. Drink a protein shake and rest, Hard.
