Killer Legs

It’s been a few months since I started incorporating unilateral movements into my upper body workouts. I like morphing things. It’s interesting that the more years you spend in the gym, the more you just know what’s working and what you need to change. Once I finish the heavier bilateral movements, I’ve been hitting some singles for paused reps. For my chest workouts, I can really feel my core engaging when I hit dumbbell presses (which is good).

Today I followed up my back squats with some high rep uni movements. This was a first for my lower body. I definitely felt the single leg presses a bit more on my ass (which is very good). I’m not interested in doing pistol squats…for one, real squats are a must…for two, I think the movement looks unsafe and bad for the knees…and for three, I’m not interested in being an acrobat. I want to be strong.

Here is what my 670 rep, bi/unilateral leg workout looked like today:

Set 1- Back Squats
25 reps (50 lbs)
20 reps (70 lbs)
15 reps (90 lbs)
10 reps (100 lbs)

Super Set 2- Uni Leg Press/Uni Calve Press/Uni Seated Ham Curl/Uni Extention
100 reps ÷ 4 moves (40 lbs ea)
100 reps ÷ 4 moves (40 lbs ea)
100 reps ÷ 4 moves (30 lbs ea)
100 reps ÷ 4 moves (30 lbs ea)
100 reps ÷ 4 moves (20 lbs ea)
100 reps ÷ 4 moves (20 lbs ea)
