This leg routine is not for faint hearted (Ramesh types). Each set is a drop set of 40 reps designed to force a lot of blood into your legs. Rest between sets is generally about 2-3 minutes, enough time for your training partner to do a set. No point being a hero and throwing up your breakfast so if you feel a bit queezy simply rest longer. As this is a shock style workout it is good to throw in every 2 months or so, definitely not the type of leg routine you would implement every week. The huge increase in lactic acid will trigger the body to release some natural growth hormones that will accelerate recovery and growth.

Don’t be surprised if your legs are sore for several days afterwards. Most gyms have a horizontal leg press (pictured above with the viking descendant on it). If your gym doesn’t have one you can substitute the Hack Squat machine or Front barbell squats. Leg curls and calf raises can be seated or standing. Standing calf raises can be performed on a smith machine if your gym doesn’t have a standing calf raise machine
