near Baud is legs day! - of the 4 workouts that I do this is what most shy away from but for me has always been a firm favorite.

From the age of 14 I've always hit legs hard. My typical leg workout in my twenties was:
8 - 10 sets of squats : starting of light and increasing weight with every set making my last the heaviest. Using a simple rule of thumb if I can get 6 reps I need to get heavier but if I can not get 3 reps then its too heavy - when I trained I would always try to get 10 reps but would stop at 10 saying to myself a simple mantra 'save some for the next '
I would then do 6 -8 sets of leg extensions followed by 6 sets of leg curls and 4 sets of calf raises.
If I was competing then I would ad front squats, lunges and hack squats to ad some variety including strip sets and mixing the order of my 3 primary exercises.
Within the gym at the holiday cottage we have a squat rack plus a machine that allows leg extension and leg curl. Next year I'm hoping to ad a sissy squat to the gym.
The gym is available for guest staying in La Forge and La veille Maison to have a good workout.
