Building the foundation with Legs

I’ve been MIA for a while. Exams on top of exams lead me to a handful of all nighters these past two weeks. Today I wanted to signify the importance of working out the lower body.

Much like a house, your body can only handle a given weight without a proper foundation. Common sense will make clear that with stronger legs, your body will support muscle growth, which in turn will allow you to lift more weight. Besides, who doesn’t enjoy seeing some nicely toned legs?

My cousin came across the Superman Program from Muscle and Fitness Magazine. It’s a stellar workout. No muscle goes unchecked. Each muscle group is worked twice a week in four days time. We’ve gotten through week one and I’m feeling and seeing the results as we both progress through it.

Below I’ve listed some popular leg exercises, that you can easily reap benefit from.

As a beginners workout you can perform each of these at
3 sets; 12-15 reps

Squat
Leg Press
Leg Extension
Reverse Extension
Calf Raises
