How often do you train your legs and do you split the muscles up in different days/sessions?
Do you prefer weighted leg exercises or bodyweight exercises?
I do both. Heavy for glutes and body weight for legs with some plyometrics.
What are your top tips when training your glutes?
Squeeze your glutes and do some dynamic warm ups first to activate the glutes. I also use a resistance band for some exercises as ‘active’ rest between sets of weighted exercises.
What does a typical leg workout look like for you?
- Dynamic warm up | 5-10 minutes
- Heavy leg press and dead lifts | 3 x 12
- Leg extensions | 4 x 15 slow tempo
- Hip thrust with resistance band
- Leg curls, slow tempo
- Box jumps
- Cardio | 30 minutes
